The Outrageous Muse: An Evening with Alma Mahler Through Story and Song
Friday, March 31 at 8 pm Petaluma Historical Library and Museum
Wife of three extraordinary men (composer Gustav Mahler, architect Walter Gropius, and novelist Franz Werfel), lover of artists Klimt and Kokoshka and muse for many more men of genius, Alma Mahler (1879-1964) was a composer of formidable talent in her own right. Alma stood at the very center of fin-de-siecle Viennese cultural life. Her life is one of the most scandalous, inspiring and ultimately triumphant stories you'll ever encounter. Join us for an unforgettable evening of song and story as we celebrate the greatest muse of all time and the magnificent art and music that swirled around the "prettiest girl of Vienna."
