Proms Plus Talk on fairytales, August 18


I’m part of the Proms! On Sat. August 18th I’ll be talking to a live audience about the dark side of fairytales with composer and author Kerry Andrew. An edited version will be broadcast that evening on Radio 3 during the interval of the concert: Sir Simon Rattle and the London Symphony Orchestra with Ravel’s magical opera L’enfant et les sortilèges, followed by his fairy-tale ballet Mother Goose and song-cycle Shéhérazade.
