From 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 4th, 2018 in Fahy 236, Slavic Club with the International Programs will present Alisa Dupuy impersonating Alexandra Feodorovna Romanov: The Last Empress of Russia, who together with her husband, Nicholas Romanov, and their children were killed by the Communists in 1917.
During her performance Alison will tell the stories about Alexandra's life and explain the historical events taking place in Russia at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. Our audience will meet the woman behind the many myths and rumors and get to know Alexandra as a person and experience the emotions behind her story. We will learn many things we never knew about Alexandra and her family.
Alisa Dupuy originated "The Ladies of History," with historical presentations and first-person portrayals, in 2006 out of her love of the important women in world history. Wearing the clothing of different historical periods, she brings history to life in a lively and fun way. As she says: "History doesn't have to be boring!"
Her list of clients has grown to include historical societies, libraries, book clubs, social clubs, church fundraisers and schools. The main goal of The Ladies of History is to make history fun, exciting and memorable for the guests who attend her shows.
Last spring, Alisa has impersonated Catherine the Great of Russia, calling her, "Woman Ahead of Her Time," during Slavic Club's April 19th meeting. It has been one of our best events in the recent memory. We are certain that this presentation will be equally fascinating and educational for our audience.
This event is free! Everyone is welcome!
Slavic food will be served!
