ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS PERFORMANCE

A Voice of One Delight was inspired by Louis Edouard Fournier’s highly romanticized painting of the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley’s funeral pyre on the beach at Viareggio. Shelley was a social and political radical who despite being philosophically opposed to marriage, twice found himself at the altar. His second wife was Mary Godwin (who later wrote Frankenstein) and they remained together until his death, but he had many emotional entanglements with other women, inspiring some of his most powerful love-poetry. The narrative is told in the words of what came to be known as the ‘Pisan Circle’ – Shelley and Mary; his last muse Jane Williams, her husband Edward who drowned with Shelley; and Lord Byron – through their correspondence and journals.
