The Eyes of the World: From D-Day to VE Day
After sold-out shows in 2018 and 2019, historian John Monsky returns to Carnegie Hall with The Eyes of the World: From D-Day to VE Day. Through the eyes of Ernest Hemingway, LIFE magazine war photographer Robert Capa, and Vogue model-turned-photojournalist Lee Miller, Monsky captures the dramatic final 11 months of World War II in Europe. Presented on the eve of Veterans Day, this musically driven, multimedia lecture tells the story of those who served and sacrificed for our country, including the young men who landed on the beaches of Normandy and the all-Black 761st Tank Battalion. Music supervisor Ian Weinberger (Hamilton) conducts the Orchestra of St. Luke’s in music from Saving Private Ryan to the works of Glenn Miller—all of which he arranged exclusively for this production.
