Marianne Grey

Meet Beethoven’s Leonore, a new incarnation of an opera’s leading lady – instead of waiting to be rescued by the hero, Leonore takes charge of her own life and her husband’s fate;  she rescues him.

As a new version of womanhood, Leonore is not alone: this illustrated talk will introduce her contemporaries in art and literature who are also redesigning their lives.
