Join Iain Scott on this virtual journey as we revisit the history of “the city of lights” from Louis XIV’s court at Versailles to the present day in five vignettes. Each week, we will combine a short history lesson with some examples of the art of that period. And – we will explore a number of operas (on video) associated with Paris at that time.
