Opening October 5, Intimate Details: Prints by James Tissot celebrates the Zimmerli Art Museum's recent acquisition of several exquisite etchings by this noted chronicler of both Belle-Epoque Paris and Victorian London. Even as artists increasingly focused on depicting aspects of contemporary life during the late 19th century, Tissot's careful attention to portraying the most current fashions, furnishings, and social activities in his paintings stood out. One critic even claimed that 'a picture by M. Tissot will be enough for archaeologists of the future to reconstitute our epoch.' On November 5, curator-led exhibition tours take place during Art After Hours: First Tuesdays, which is free and open to the public.

I'm a Good Little Devil is a cabaret revue about the early Broadway music hall era full of glamour, fun, and joy! This show is divided into seven scenes and ten costumes, recreating some of the best success of Gaby Deslys, a world acclaimed singer and dancer of the belle epoque. She was a modern emancipated woman, and free of the conventions of her time. She introduced Paris to the world of jazz with her revue 'Laisse, les tomber!' in 1917, but suddenly died at the age of 39. The show consists of three characters and a piano. We have the gorgeous French Perrine Cabassud, Soprano, as Gaby Deslys, the handsome and elegant Jean-Christophe Born, T nor and the delirious Mark Nadler, at the piano. The songs are performed in English, in their original versions. Mark Nadler, was elected best showman performer in New York in 2015 and he has rewritten and rearranged the music, making these ragtime and early jazz tunes as exciting as possible for today's audience!
