Literature Evening - Scenes from George Eliot's 'Scenes of Clerical Life'

As part of the world-wide celebrations of the bicentenary of the great novelist’s birth, and thanks to a unique cooperation of the VHS Düsseldorf, the English Speakers‘ Circle, the George Eliot Fellowship (UK) and our theatre group, an entertaining evening of dramatised readings of selected extracts from George Eliot’s first published and ground-breaking fiction, `Scenes of Clerical Life ´(1857) was organised at the sold-out VHS Düsseldorf.

Introductions by English writer Bob Muscutt placed each extract in context in the respective story, and provided interesting background knowledge on George Eliot's life.

George Eliot Voice-over

It was a pleasure and an honour for some of our actors to voice-record, together with English writer Bob Muscutt, various excerpts from George Eliot's diary and letters written during her sojourn in Weimar in 1854. We all immensely enjoyed revisiting the works of this fascinating writer.
