Radical Victorians in Art and Music

Opening Program
February 19, 2020

Tim Barringer, cocurator of Victorian Radicals: From the Pre-Raphaelites to the Arts and Crafts Movement, introduces a program of Victorian art and music that protested the industrialization of the era and offered radical utopian alternatives. Soprano Lucy Fitz Gibbon, Yale BA 2010, and pianist Ryan McCullough perform scores ranging from popular ballads and socialist anthems, accompanied by the words of William Morris, to the lyrical work of composer Charles Villiers Stanford and the inimitable satire of W. S. Gilbert and Sullivan.
