The Haunted Manor Opera in POSK Theatre, London - Oxford Prospect

The Haunted Manor Opera in POSK Theatre, London - Oxford Prospect | energy journalist | Scoop.it
An age old Polish favourite classic opera came to London, The Haunted Manor with the libretto by Jan Checinski and music by Stanislaw Moniuszko. It was performed by an excellent group of professional opera singers, The Orchestra of POSK, and the very proficient amateur Mazury YMCA Dance Group of London. Feliks Tarnawski was the drama Director, and Stephen Ellery and Alexander Walker were the Conductors. The plot has two elements, one romantic and the other patriotic, representing 2 views of life in a Polish country manor house –firstly, idyllic family life and, secondly, patriotic readiness to fight for Poland’s independence during the 3 partitions time (when Russia, Prussia and Austria occupied Poland:1772 – 1793 – 1795). The original opera was first performed at the Teatr Wielki, Warsaw in 1865 only three times, before it was banned by the Russian Empire censors, because of its Polish revolutionary undertones.

New Oxford Cambridge Expressway Proposed - Oxford Prospect

New Oxford Cambridge Expressway Proposed - Oxford Prospect | energy journalist | Scoop.it
A study worth £512,000 will explore options into the potential for creating a dedicated road link between Oxford, Milton Keynes and Cambridge.This new route could help relieve pressure on London's congested orbital motorway the M25. Though, it will be interesting to see what such a road would have on the business case for rebuilding and opening the East West rail link that follows the same route and serves the same destinations. Highways England has appointed WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff, Halcrow and Steer Davies Gleave as a joint venture to lead the study. The study will consider options for improving connectivity between the towns and cities along from Oxford to Cambridge. It will also extend to the A34 as far as the M4. In particular, it will look at making use of existing roads where possible and considering the case for filling the missing links.

Titian to Canaletto Drawing in Venice - Oxford Prospect

Titian to Canaletto Drawing in Venice - Oxford Prospect | energy journalist | Scoop.it
Discover how the splendour of Venice and its shimmering light influenced artists, resulting in compelling portraits, atmospheric landscapes of exceptional beauty and sensuous figure studies. Venetian art has long been associated with brilliant colours and free brushstrokes, but drawing has largely been written out of its history. This ground breaking exhibition, in collaboration with the Uffizi in Florence, is based on new research. It traces the role of drawing in Venice and its importance over three centuries, dispelling the myth that Venetian artists, including their greatest painter, Titian, had no interest in drawing. This is the first major exhibition of Venetian drawings in the UK and it includes over 100 magnificent works from the Uffizi, the Ashmolean, and Christ Church, Oxford, by artists such as Titian, Tintoretto and Canaletto.
