Venice, Italy – February 8th 2016 at 6pm. Talk on Blake followed by dinner.
At: Marina Militare Circulo Ufficiale ‘Adriano Foscari’, Fondamenta dell’Arsenale, Castello 2168, Venezia.

We began 2016 with one of our international events and a return to Italy where Val gave a talk to the Circolo Italo Britannico Venezia, on her staging of William Blake’s work, in particular Songs of Innocence and Experience. This included live readings of translations of Blake’s poems into Italian by great 20th Century Italian poet, Ungaretti. And music by John Tavener inspired by Blake. 

This is the first event we have staged in Italy since our tour of Bryon in Love to Verona, and it was delightful to be invited to return.
