An Evening with Ada

As part of the world wide Ada Lovelace Day on Tuesday, October 14th, we are delighted to present an ‘Evening with Ada’, at the 52nd St Project in New York City!

Composer Kim Sherman, Librettist (and Senior Lecturer in English at Barnard College) Margaret Vandenburg and Princeton University Professor Naomi Ehrich Leonard (Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering) will explore the close relationship between science and art, facilitated by Director Lisa Rothe. The evening will feature selections from a new opera, “Ada”, sung by Sarah Chalfy and accompanied by Jocelyn Dueck.

This evening has been sculpted to explore the life and contributions of Ada Lovelace Byron, the inspiration for our opera in development. Supported by arias from the opera and a discussion about Ada’s legacy as a mathematician, we will learn more about her passion for ‘the poetry of numbers’ and how her work connects to the world of technology today.

An Evening with Ada is presented by the Ada the Opera team; Kim Sherman, Margaret Vandenburg, Lisa Rothe and Louise Fagan.
