Cocteau's World: A Symposium

The Institute for the Arts and Humanistic Studies at Penn State University
announces an interdisciplinary symposium devoted to the creative life of
Jean Cocteau in all of its manifestations. The three-day symposium,
scheduled for March 16-18, 2000, will combine a scholarly appreciation of
Cocteau's work with an ambitious schedule of film screenings, exhibitions
and performances, including the world premiere of an original
opéra-comique, Paul et Virginie, written by Cocteau and Raymond Radiguet
in 1920. For more information call +1-(814) 865-0495 or visit our web-site
