The Ghost of Marie Antoinette
Thursday 1 October 2015 at 7pm
A free live performance by Jan Goodkin for the opening night at
Westland Place Open Studios 2015
3-11 Westland Place, London N1 7LP.
As the ghost of Marie Antoinette I will be recalling her final journey to the guillotine ….on the Fire Escape in the courtyard, near the recycling bins, at the back of Westland Place Studio building!
The performance is based on the aria ‘They are always with me’ which is from the opera ‘The Ghosts of Versailles’ composed by John Corigliano with libretto by W M Hoffman in 1992.
Even as a ghost Marie Antoinette is haunted by the terrible events and the vivid horrific images she had endured.
