A reading of Austen's delightful classic that examines and satirises English country life, accompanied by classical music.
Emma Woodhouse handsome, clever, and rich, with a comfortable home and happy disposition seemed to unite some of the best blessings of existence; and nearly twenty one years in the world with very little to distress or vex her.
So begins Jane Austen's comic masterpiece 'Emma'. Austen brilliantly elevates the trivialities of early-nineteenth-century life in the English countryside, with the irresistible Emma at the centre of this world. Her matchmaking habits, although with the best of intentions, are the cause of much turmoil for all involved.
