Description

ROBERT AND ELIZABETH: LET ME COUNT THE WAYS

Rosamund Shelley, actor

Tim Hardy, actor

Gavin Roberts, piano

6:45pm: Pre-Concert Talk Dr Simon Avery (Westminster University) on the Brownings’ connection with St Marylebone.

Rosamund Shelley and Gavin Roberts, who have performed a number of shows together including Novello & Son and War Songs, alongside actor Tim Hardy, have devised this dramatic narration on the courtship and marriage of Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning. Using songs from the 1964 Musical Robert and Elizabeth with music by Ron Grainer (also famed for writing the theme music for Doctor Who), Shelley plays Barrett looking back on her life with Browning, played by Hardy. Music from Grainer’s musical is interspersed with the poets’ poems and letters that tell this fascinating love story.
