The Gilded Birdcage.

Her Imperial Majesty the Queen-Empress Victoria invites you to an immersive performance of The Sonata in A major by César Franck Friday, the 29th of May at The Shoreditch Salon.


Experience the trials and tribulations of Victorian love affairs and see how the music, texts and dance of the time so romantically depict the tumultuous and turbulent emotions that come along with them.

Some kill their love when they are young,

And some when they are old;

Some strangle with the hands of Lust,

Some with the hands of Gold:

The kindest use a knife, because

The dead so soon grow cold.

                                                           - Oscar Wilde
