Novello & Son at WMC, 3 Dec 2014
It is 1938. Singer, pianist, conductor and one of Cardiff's most famous daughters, Madame Clara Novello Davies, looks back at her life and her relationship with her son Ivor, whose unexpected fame has eclipsed hers.
In a funny and at times poignant final performance, she tells her story, sings his songs, and allows us a glimpse of her conflicting emotions - envy, guilt, regret...and a new feeling of invisibility.
With Rosamund Shelley as Clara Novello Davies, and piano from Christopher Littlewood. Directed by Pip Broughton.
