SIR ARTHUR SULLIVAN – GREAT VICTORIAN MUSICIAN
The second of this season’s talks by Donald Hunt will be presented at The Elgar Birthplace Museum on Tuesday 12th April.
The title of the talk is “Sir Arthur Sullivan – A Great Victorian Musician”, in which Donald will lead us on a voyage of discovery about this much underrated composer.
Elgar Birthplace Museum Supervisor, Chris Bennett said:
“We all know and love at least one of the comic operas Sullivan wrote in conjunction with William Gilbert – they have become part of the nation’s heritage, but there was so much more to his music. This, coupled with a complicated personal life, makes Sullivan an ideal subject for Donald, who has conducted Sullivan’s music dozens of times throughout his illustrious career.”
Tickets to the talk cost £6, to include interval refreshments, and will be available on the door. They can also be purchased in advance from www.elgarmuseum.org, or by telephoning the Museum on 01905 333224.
