Composer. Impressario. Stage actor. Matinee Idol. Hollywood star. Ivor Novello was the quintessential 20th Century Man. His songs were the soundtrack to the war years and are some of the finest compositions in the catalogue of 20th century music.
Join soprano Sandra Oman, tenor Richard Shaffrey and baritone Simon Morgan, in the atmosphere of Novello's drawing room, to hear them reminisce about the exotic life of the great man – his being directed by Alfred Hitchcock, his Hollywood period, the stories behind the composition of his great stage musicals – and hear them perform his most beloved songs: We'll Gather Lilacs, Keep the Home Fires Burning, Waltz of my Heart, My Dearest Dear, And her Mother Came Too, My Life Belongs to You, Fold Your Wings, Shine through my Dreams, and Someday my Heart will awake.
Step back into the 1930's Novello Drawing Room for a lunchtime celebration of one of the most popular entertainers of the first half of the 20th century.
