Today in NOLA 9.14.17

Today, educate yourself about the climate change in New Orleans with a forum featuring mayoral candidates. Bono will take the stage at the SuperDome as U2 rolls into town, and the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra opens their 2017-2018 with a stirring show. The American Italian Cultural Center will screen the classic Stromboli, starring Ingrid Bergman. On this day in 1874, the Battle of Liberty Place occurred. It is considered on of the largest killings of municipal police officers in American history. Five thousand members of the White League descended on the state government offices to try to forcefully impose Democratic candidates. A coalition of black, Italian, and Union militiamen formed the municipal police force. Many men, both defending the government and rebelling against it, died. Finally, federal troops stopped the insurrection and reimposed the Republican government. Now, more to do this Thursday. 

 

Mayoral Forum (New Orleans Jazz Market, 5:30PM)

Join the Urban Conservancy and the Greater New Orleans Foundation for a forum to learn what top mayoral candidates will advocate for in policy work to steel the city against flood risk and climate change. The panel will feature confirmed appearances by Michael Bagneris, Ed Bruski, LaToya Cantrell, Desiree Charbonnet, Brandon Dorrington, Troy Henry, Matthew Hill, and Johnese Smith. 

 

Stromboli (American Italian Cultural Center, 6:30PM)

Following her Hollywood exile due to her extramarital affair with Roberto Rossellini, film star Ingrid Bergman followed the Italian director to his home country to make a series of challenging and signaturely neorealist features. Stromboli, released in 1950, marked Bergman's first feature away from the studio system that created Casablanca, Notorious, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and more. Under Rossellini's direction, Bergman plays a Lithuanian refugee who marries an Italian POW in promise of a better life. Together they move to Stromboli, a volcanic island she initially believed to be paradise. The island soon proves itself barren and unwelcoming to the foreign woman, who now must find her way. 

 

U2 (SuperDome, 7PM)

U2 drops by the Dome as part of their lengthy The Joshua Tree Tour, in honor of the 30th anniversary of their powerfully politically-charged album of the same name. Grammy-winning artist Beck will serve as the opening act for tonight's show. 

 

Boléro (Orpheum Theater, 7:30PM)

The Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra kicks off the 2017-2018 season with an epic opening weekend. Tonight and Saturday, conductor Carlos Miguel Prieto will lead the LPO through a lineup that begins with Maurice Ravel's La Valse. George Gershwin's Piano Concerto in F and La Mer by Claude Debussy round out the show, which culminates in Ravel's crowd-favorite Boléro
