Talk: Paris in 1900

With the aid of a wealth of imagery and historic recordings, this lecture explores the city’s transition to a new century with a great World Exhibition – an international feast of the visual and the performing arts celebrating the triumph of Art Nouveau and the wonders of electricity.

Amazing early recordings allow the audience to hear the voices of Sarah Bernhardt in L’Aiglon; of Coquelin in Cyrano de Bergerac; of Mary Garden in Louise; and Proust's lover Reynaldo Hahn in his own perfumed songs.
