Autumn/Winter 2019 Events

7th November 2019 The Fan Museum715 views

The Fan Museum’s Autumn/Winter events programme is well underway, with two unmissable performances yet to take place before the year concludes.

First up, on Monday 18 November the Museum welcomes acclaimed Chinese opera performer and Founder of London Chinese Opera Studio, Kathy Hall. Ticket holders are in for a rare treat as Ms Hall, dressed in elaborate costume and carrying a traditional Chinese folding fan, gives a mesmerising performance of ‘In Pursuit of the Dream’ from the Kunqu Opera: The Peony Pavilion.
A limited number of tickets remain available to purchase: https://www.thefanmuseum.org.uk/events/in-celebration-in-pursuit-of-the-dream

On Friday 06 December the Museum’s painted Orangery provides an atmospheric setting for Wayne Adrian Drew’s latest production, ‘Looking Glass River’. Set in the lush, tropical surroundings of the South Pacific, the one-man play tells the story of Robert Louis Stevenson’s (played by the ever-popular Richard Holliss) last days on the island of Samoa. There he recalls his youth, how he came to write his most popular works, his famous contemporaries, and the joys and heartbreaks of love. Tickets are expected to sell out well in advance of the event: https://www.thefanmuseum.org.uk/events/in-celebration-looking-glass-river
