Stuck in the Garden of Eden with an irresistible temptation and the persuasive voice of Satan, Eve is faced with a moral dilemma. Later, the devil is up to the same trickery in an attempt to reduce Jesus to the same humiliating fate. Covering themes of obedience and defiance, virtue and sin, degradation and redemption, Milton forces us to confront life’s biggest dichotomies. Join us for a dramatic reading of extracts from John Milton’s renowned epic poems Paradise Lost and Paradise Regained, brought to you by two acclaimed British actors (to be announced). The readings will be woven into three J.S. Bach cantatas whose texts are linked to Milton’s themes (BWV 19, 54 and 80).
