Dance To The Music Of Time, A


A glittering cast star in award-winning screenwriter Hugh Whitemore’s adaptation of Anthony Powell’s 12-volume novel sequence.

The ‘dance through time’ of the series is charted by the omnipresent Nicholas Jenkins as he watches his old Eton schoolfriends both succeed and fail.

Centre stage is Kenneth Widmerpool, a great comic character who rises from school whipping boy to military and political success – only to fall spectacularly from grace. Over one hundred characters move through this sharp, perceptive portrayal of England’s social, political and artistic circles based on Powell’s own experiences of Eton, Oxford and literary London.
