What did music mean for Napoleon and those living under his rule? Was it entertainment, escapism or propaganda? Join musicologist Dr Katherine Hambridge from Durham University, and musicians Mark Austin, Oskar McCarthy and Héloïse Werner, for a combined concert and talk exploring how music both supported and undermined the allure of the Napoleonic regime. Together, we will travel through the elegance of the salons, the spectacle of the opera, the irreverent boulevard theatres and the violence and enthusiasm of popular songs in a joyful afternoon of music and song.
