The tales and travels of Lalla Rookh

Lalla Rookh.1822d.jpg

 This exhibition allows the reader to experience the story of Moore's Lalla Rookh through a selection of the music and illustrations that Moore's oriental romance inspired. The circulation of illustrated editions and musical scores across space (Europe) and time (between 1817 and 1880) may also be explored. The images displayed here are but a selection from the complementary OMEKA collection, 'Lalla Rookh in 19th-century Europe'.
