“The Composer and His Muse: the great women behind great men”

“The Composer and His Muse: the great women behind great men”

London,Caversham Room, Cadogan Hall25 Apr

“Fiction’s Fallen Women: from page to stage – Violetta & Manon”

London,Caversham Room, Cadogan Hall2 May
Prévost’s L’Histoire du chevalier des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut made an outrageous appearance on the literary scene in 1731 detailing the exploits of the young, beautiful, and morally incorrigible Manon. Banned in France for its scandalous depiction of this unrepentant libertarian of a woman the novel became very popular and pirated editions were widely distributed.
