A whistlestop tour through Gothic horror, German folklore and the lawless backstreets of fin-de-siècle Paris.
Doctor James Savage-Hanford, Professor Mererid Puw Davies, director Martin Lloyd-Evans, conductor Francesco Cilluffo and Paul Guinery of The Delius Trust join Anna Picard to explore the contrasting styles and soundworlds of this year’s double bill of Delius and Puccini.
Topics include naturalism and the supernatural, wronged heroines, vengeful spirits in German folklore, and the bohemian lifestyle and tangled relationships of Delius’s circle in Paris.
