At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

A 20th century masterpiece.

Receiving news of an unexpected inheritance, the gullible Tom Rakewell leaves the countryside and his loving fiancée, Anne Trulove, for London. Manipulated by the troubling Nick Shadow, whom he has hired as a servant, he abandons himself to a life of debauchery and chaos. Later, ruined, Tom ends up playing cards for his soul with his servant who turns out to be the devil.
The Rake's Progress is inspired by a series of eight engravings by the English painter William Hogarth entitled "A Rake's Progress" It charts the progressive decline of a young man driven to ruin by a shadowy character - a combination of Mephistopheles and Leporello - who eventually ends up in a madhouse. The myth of Faust is never far away and the shadow of Don Giovanni hovers over this remarkably inventive libretto. Stravinsky was criticised for having composed a pastiche of a Mozart opera. While Mozart did indeed serve as a stylistic reference, this did not prevent the Rite of Spring composer from asserting his own personality using a rich, ambiguous, musical language.
