Steve Berkoff reading Byron's Don Juan
« Reply #1 on: June 10, 2024, 08:06:17 PM »
Steven Berkoff will read from Lord Byron’s poem Don Juan. This will be with music from the Romantic period (and complimentary prosecco!).

The music includes Harold in Italy by Berlioz, inspired by Byron’s poetry.  George White will perform on viola with Elena Toponogova on piano.

“The South Downs Poetry Festival is delighted to link up with the Keats-Shelley Memorial Association to celebrate the bicentenary of Lord Byron’s death. Admired and reviled in his own time, Byron is now recognised as one of the great Romantic poets”.

This is part of the Festival of Chichester on 9 July 2024.  Details are on the Festival website click here
