Guided Tours


Musical London, Events generally
London
Stroll through London's West End with Corinna and discover five centuries of music and musicians, past and present. See theatres, churches, concert halls and dwelling where the chrysalis for Puccini's Butterfly began, where Beatlemania started and where music halls of yesteryear still ring with modern musicals.

Hear where 16th-century Tallis flourished and Tavener follows on today, where Mozart's virtuosity shone aged seven, where Mick Jagger still rolls on and Elton John sings for the nation. Find out where opera and operettas make and break aspiring singers, where dancing feet are shod and where Haydn and Handel lived and composed.

Find out where Queen Victoria's parrot had to go, what Elgar's dog did, where sopranos sparred and flocks of sparrows took flight. Your personal guide to your imagination - soaring on wings of song - is Corinna. She's a West End and Royal National Theatre actress who sings as well (and into the bargain is a professionally qualified City of London guide). Enthused (it's a great word, enthused...its Greek root means "breathed into by God") by music, with luck she'll sing you a snatch or two...

To go on the Musical London - Baroque to Rock walk meet Corinna just outside the exit of Leicester SquareTube Stop. You want the exit that's right by Wyndham's Theatre.

The "Latecomers Catch-up Stop" is along St. Martin's Lane (toward Trafalgar Square).
