Dr Lois Oliver will speak about Love and Loss in her talk about Orpheus and Eurydice. Known to be a cultural tour de force who delivers her subject with rigour we are looking forward to her interpretation of the tragic story of the legendry gifted singer Orpheus who lost his wife from a single glance while trying to rescue her from the Underworld, linking in works of selected composers such as Monteverdi, Gluck and Offenbach, and even the Can-Can, and numerous artists all of whom have been inspired by the myth and have responded to it over the centuries.

A graduate from Cambridge University and the Courtauld Institute, Dr Oliver has also worked at the Harvard University Art Museums, has been a curator at the V&A and the National Gallery. She is currently Assistant Professor in History of Art at the University of Notre Dame in London and visiting lecturer at the Courtauld Institute.
