The Exhibition has now closed...

The story of the Company was given on a series of display boards, and some of the manuscripts (including some orchestral parts dating from 1826), production plans, programmes, photographs, and biographies of some of the major personalities, were also on display.

One of our Trustees, Dr Valerie Langfield, was interviewed about it, by Liverpool’s TV station Made in Liverpool. You can hear the interview here - it starts at 6'50" and lasts for 4 minutes.

The first Carl Rosa Trust Symposium was held on Saturday 19 November 2016, at the Hornby Library. About a dozen delegates attended - all specialists in their fields - and after short presentations from the Trustees, various items from the Archive were brought out for examination. A great deal of discussion ensued, which was exactly what we wanted. We were keen to show something of the nature of the archive, with a view to permitting its use as a research resource, or as a subject for research in its own right.

In the afternoon, students from Liverpool Hope University gave a short recital, the programme drawn from items regularly performed by the Carl Rosa Company. They were superbly accompanied by David Walters, senior lecturer and principal accompanist at the University.

Some of the visitors mentioned the ‘new’ Carl Rosa company that is currently staging productions; this has no connection with the Carl Rosa Trust and archive.

We’re also very keen to receive feedback from anyone who’s been to the exhibition - please email Valerie Langfield with your comments.
