You’re Invited: The Rhetoric of Certainty

The world premiere of Doubt, based on the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning play, at the Minnesota Opera is slated for the end of this month. Next week, they’re teaming up with the Humphrey School of Public Affairs to present a panel and public conversation exploring the rhetoric and political implications of certainty and doubt. Join them at theater to discern for yourself what is art and what is politics.

Humphrey School of Public Affairs, University of Minnesota.
The Rhetoric of Certainty


Wednesday, January 16
7 – 8:30 p.m.
Rarig Center, Stroll Thrust Theater
330 21st Avenue South
Minneapolis, MN 55454


Art and policy intersect again as the Minnesota Opera and the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School of Public Affairs convene a public conversation inspired by the world premiere of Doubt.

Librettist John Patrick Shanley and other distinguished panelists will explore the rhetoric and political implications of certainty and the natural human aversion to doubt, particularly in the context of the opera’s setting (Vatican II and the Civil Rights movement) and the war in Iraq, the event which provided the playwright with his inspiration.

Tickets are free and open to the public but your RSVP is required by January 14.

Parking may be available for a fee at the 21st Avenue Ramp.
