In his 1991 book, Why Read the Classics?, the great Italian writer Italo Calvino lists 14 definitions of a classic, one of which might serve as the underlying purpose of Classics at Cour Regard: “A classic is a book which with each rereading offers as much of a sense of discovery as the first reading.” Through this unique presentation of the classics, the Dallas Institue of Humanities and Culture hopes to animate a sense of both familiarity and newness in artistically diverse engagements of the best that has been written over the centuries.

Part performance, part scholarly exploration, Classics at Cour Regard offers a 21st century perspective on our culture’s most iconic works of literature through multidisciplinary celebrations of classic texts. The evening will include music, performance, food, drink, and great literature - Dostoevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov
