Administrative / Biographical History

During the early 1970s, Burgess made frequent excursions from his house in Bracciano in Italy to the USA and Canada. (Between 1972 and 1973, Burgess held a teaching post at City College, New York, and travelled around North America during this period.) In May 1973 Burgess and his family visited New York for the opening of Cyrano the musical, starring Christopher Plummer, at the Palace Theater in New York, and to attend the performance of King Oedipus, for Speaker, Chorus, and Orchestra, at the Whitney Museum in New York.
