Ruba’iya’t recital in Felixstowe in January 2017

November 8, 2016

felixstowe1116Charles Mugleston has sent us information about a presentation that he will be doing at the Felixstowe Museum in Suffolk on Wednesday January 11th  2017, 7.30 pm at Broadway House, Orwell Road, Felixstowe.

Charles’ overall title for the evening is Edward FitzGerald and Felixstowe, though the Museum has the event billed as a talk on Omar Khayyam;  we think all these aspects will in fact be covered.  Charles will give a recital of the first edition of FitzGerald’s Ruba’iya’t, prefaced by a short talk outlining the known links between Edward FitzGerald, the Ruba’iya’t and Felixstowe – past & up to the present.

For more information on this event, see http://felixstowemuseum.org/?ai1ec_event=evening-talks-programme-4&instance_id=750.  And if you can get there, do go along.  We have heard one of Charles’ recitals of the Ruba’iya’t before and we know that his is a very insightful presentation.  Listening in this way is a good method of introducing newcomers to the beauty and music of FitzGerald’s verse, as well as the underlying thought of the poem.
