Walking in Handel's Footsteps

(the development of Opera in early Georgian London)

Description

His Operas may not be part of the regular repertoire now but Handel nevertheless made a significant contribution to the development of Italian Opera in this country at the beginning of the 18th Century.

 

Not an Opera fan? There's something for everyone here, as the tour transports you back in time to early Georgian London! We also cover early Georgian architecture, the development of the great London estates, modes of transport, coffee houses, drinking chocolate, bagnios and Gentlemen's clubs amongst many other features of life in the early 1700s.
