Charles Dickens relished the thrill of live performance, be it music, drama or dance.
The Academy's new exhibition Dickens and Music delves into Dickens's connections to the Victorian musical world, from opera to street ballads. The novelist's social and geographical connections to the Academy itself are also explored.
Dickens's ties to the Royal Academy of Music and its Marylebone setting lie at the heart of the display, illustrated by items from the Academy's renowned collections. His sister Fanny was a student of the early Academy on two occasions, drawing both siblings into the society of young, gifted musicians. The Academy's exhibition presents a unique opportunity to read an original unpublished letter penned by Charles Dickens and to see Fanny's youthful attempts at musical composition.
