Event description
The story of Aeneas, warrior and refugee, in the original Latin verse with an English linking narrative

About this Event

The Song of Arms and a Man tells the story of Aeneas’ escape from Troy, his stay with Dido and his struggle to fulfil his destiny as founder of Rome. These Latin readings from Virgil’s Aeneid are selective, but with the help of an English narration tell the whole story of the poem, rarely heard, in a unique presentation of the original verse, echoing the ancient culture of public performance of poetry.

George Sharpley’s adaptation of this extraordinarily musical poem is read by Emma Kirkby, Matthew Hargreaves, Elizabeth Donnelly and Llewelyn Morgan.

This is for all, including those new to Latin.
