Ticket Price : £14.50Get tickets
The French chanteuse Barbara, who would have been 90 this year, defined the meaning of relationships for an entire generation. A million people packed the streets of Paris for her funeral and her songs are still heard at state occasions. Norman Lebrecht, who made a BBC documentary of her life in 2011, looks back at Barbara through the prism of powerful Jewish women who burst upon the world from the mid-19th century – Sarah Bernhardt, Barbara, Golda Meir, and Barbara Streisand.
Norman Lebrecht is the world’s bestselling author on classical music. Aside from the history of Western music, he has a lifelong passion for the culture and chronicles of the Jewish people.
