The Rake's Progress
    By Igor Stravinsky, W. H. Auden & Chester Kallman

    20:00, Fri 11th – Sat 12th February 2011 at West Road Concert Hall
    Lent Week 3

    Stravinsky's neoclassical setting of W. H. Auden's tragic masterpiece, based around the 18th century engravings of William Hogarth.

    Lured away from his quiet country life with sweetheart Anne Truelove, Tom Rakewell descends to the raucous delights of a dissolute London life, aided by the enigmatic Nick Shadow. A disastrous marriage to the bearded lady Baba the Turk, spiralling debts, and distaste for the debauchery that surrounds him eventually provoke the madness that consigns him to Bedlam.

    "For idle hands and hearts and mind, the devil finds a work to do".
