Love: Sacred and Profane

1 Feb

The En Travesti Ensemble perform a selection of duets from various opera and classical pieces at the British Library Conference Centre, on the day before Valentines Day. As part of LGBT History month, they use the exploration of gender as a way of showcasing the long-standing history of gender-blending, travesti and castrati roles that have featured in opera for centuries.

Produced in association with Camden LGBT Forum, this event will provide a romantic, yet radical, way to celebrate Valentines day. Discover something new about queer identities and history, listen to beautiful music performed by an acclaimed company and treat yourself to a blissful afternoon’s entertainment. Just the thing for a pre-Valentine Sunday afternoon.
