200 years ago, everyone was talking about Napoleon. They were also singing. As part of its program to accompany the exhibition Bonaparte and the British, the British Museum invites you to listen (and even singing along) to an eclectic selection of songs and music theatre from the Napoleonic Wars.
Ranging from sabre-rattling odes to poignant laments, taking in glory, sex, comedy, satire, and fantastic tunes, these British, French and German pieces are presented and performed by a motley alliance of academics and folk musicians, bringing the prints on the walls vividly to life.
Room 90. 6.30pm-7.30pm, free.
