We go they were the rock gods of the eighteenth century. They played to packed venues filled with screaming. Fans people would line up overnight sometimes waiting for days in order to get tickets for their shows. Groupies would sneak backstage in an attempt to you know have a little fun. Spend the night you said in the eighteen. Hundreds eighteenth century and this team fench. Yeah this was the early seventeen hundreds. They were the biggest of their time. They were the opera stars. Oh of the early eighteenth century. Let me paint a picture for you please ill. It was an autumn night in seventeen. Thirty four this is actually this happened. This is a historical account. It was at the kings theatre on london's haymarket. It's a hot night but it standing room. Only the great opera star farinelli is performing as his last notes. Reverberate off the rafters the upscale audience explodes in frantic applause. He strolls casually to the edge of the stage to take his bows in the front row. A high society woman who would normally be very reserved hysterically screams. One god one farinelli and then faints only. Yes thank beatle. Mania really is the attitude mania seattle mania like rockstars. Today many of them didn't use their real names. And that was the case with farinelli. His real name was carlo brody. He was probably the most famous opera singer During this period without doubt he was the rockstar of his day his performances were accompanied by hysterical fans. Mostly women who screamed all the way through his performances. They'd see him in the streets they'd mob him. They'd rip his clothes. He commanded huge sums of money for his live performances. Andy was considered a threat to the establishment. He was a bad influence on the younger generation. Is what people said. He was very much like a modern rockstar. With one big exception He was castrated. Well yeah yeah. I know he was actually one of many many castrated opera singers at the time they were called. Oh cuss strategies was it. Strato thought that it would improve the way they sing. Yeah or created. Lisa and interesting sound and unsure it does when ones being castrated kastrati were opera singers who were castrated before puberty. The idea was to preserve preserve their youthful boy like singing voices as they gradually grew into men. Their voice developed into a very unique sounding instrument. That is terrible. It produced an exquisite sound. That people of the time fell in love with now. This actually began in the sixteenth century and people were cool with this process. Yeah yeah the you know. Sometimes the days the days days were violent. You can have your days. The practice as i said began in the sixteenth century in italy kastrati could be found singing in choirs. Even in court they had them in court they performed also at the sistine chapel now. They were used to hit the high notes they needed men that could hit the high notes. Now yes there were women that could hit the high notes but it was forbidden for women to sing in church. So they'd rather cut their balls off. Then let a woman singing church. They became so popular by the early eighteenth century that rarely a performance of an italian opera. That did not feature at least one kastrati and it was like an advertise guessing. ole okay. Yeah it was a craze in. It reached peak the seventeen twenty s and seventeen thirties. That is horrendous. Not only not only was it known commonly known but a common phrase used by audience. Members alike was quote long. Live the little knife they were in effect praising the tools that had a castrated the men that created these unique voices child abuse. It became a status symbol to be a kastrati. It's thought that four thousand italian boys were castrated each year. All in the name of music now. Oftentimes the kastrati came from poor families. And they you know. They thought worry about their family. Lineage continuing long as they could be used for entertainment. They thought that their sons would hope they hope one day would find success and prosperity in bring that back to the family but farinelli was from an upper society wealthy family history records that some including another celebrated star cafarelli requested the procedure himself. As a child he went. And said yeah. Please snip snip. Even though it was incredibly popular and respected to be a member of the kastrati many in the eighteenth century felt. Yeah you know genital mutilation of young boys might be a tad distasteful music. Historian named dr charles. Burney traveled all over. Italy was trying to find out where it was. The are performing these castrations but no city would admit to it. Yeah he wrote quote. I was told at milan that it was at venice at venice that it was at bologna at.

Charles burney wrote in his seventeen eighty-nine book a general history of music. An opera was attempted on april the seventh at the little theatre in the haymarket under the direction of geminiani prince lab covets. Who was at this time in london and fond of music and the celebrated mysterious count. Sandra man attended all the rehearsals. Perhaps this is simply more evidence of the high regard with which the council musical talent was held and yet it remains unusual. The two man of which so little has been recorded would have his work performed in this manner. Things only become more intriguing when we take into account an unusual mural that was painted at the home of johann jacob heidegger once manager of the renowned king's theatre in london heidegger bought the property in seventeen forty four and had several murals of swiss and italian landscapes painted throughout it and over one doorway still existing today forming part of the mural.

Yes yes yes and you have to pay fathers to join this livery companies quite a substantial amount to enable you to trade guess you can't trade suturing so in terms of fan making obviously there's there's a lot of people making friends houses the whole family museum downing the Greenwich What what would you know what they we being used for. What kind of well fans with the absolute accessory for the eighteenth century they were? They couldn't really go out without you. Fan And they had all sorts of meanings in the way that they used for North Sharpsville and some of the designs store. They were a luxury item that you could not. And they were sort of a small canvas himself like some of the pictures. I've seen taste absolutely amazing. I've seen a wonderful one with the map of London on it which is really covered actually found making fans were essential. Go to your to your question really wasn't it wasn't really be anything to do with. Your heart is Linda g you got with your Fan yes you can cover your face with your family conflictual fan or or you can just be hot and find yourself but cheap sheep side was able to support a number of fan shops including these three these. The sisters had fans shops at. Ah they were spaced out on cheap site so they all operated. Same Time Martha Never married she was going to never married and she traded for at least thirty five years in Instant pools church but esther who had six children of her own she she had. She bore nine children sheet six surviving one of her daughter's was funny. Bernie the novelist Fanny Burney never never mentioned span's even though it's quite a strong tradition in her family and she's got the name we're finding I'd never thought about so. Burn plenty of fans. She did indeed. She never mentioned fans in any of her novels. Possibly she was not that proud of coming from a line of it As she did go on to be a lady in waiting to the Queen so she may have wanted to rub over. Trade read origins but s to sleep ran this business before she was married very young age early twenties. Then she married than she traded in Maritime Bernie and She died in her thirties after leaving the city but at one point for quite a long time she made she brought more money into the family than her husband.

Businesswoman and sisters were not SOCI- reaping looking at a number of women who Working in they run their own businesses in the city Obscene trade cards. Some of them are married. Some of the MON married to the married ones used their husband's name change their name. Would they used. They used to house name so the Yes. And if they marry someone who is a member of a livery company They trade under his license his credentials. But what is interesting. Is that although they could be Freeman They did not take any part in the admin of the gilts themselves so they were not involved in any of the boards. The courts running running the show. Your they need the trait but I think like next month is going to be like the eight hundred four. Lord Mayor's parade right and you know. I think they've had over seven hundred Lord Mayor of the city of London with only two female one Tom. Yes within my lifetime onto the nine hundred eighty s and then I think wolf is coming to be as which you know and also I was going to mention about the fact that you view even cool? The Women Freeman still today. Ask Monroe no no Freeman honoree men so in Matt respect they. I'm not standing in their own right. I suppose they're not recognized as women's as such but they are committed to take which you know in the eighteenth century when we have this idea that women were just at home doing domestic things cooled sort of domestic sphere. Actually they were in the world. I think preps more than we have recognized more than we have seen the the. They may not have been the professions but they've certainly active in business and and employment at all over the other thing. I was thinking having having these I mean. Obviously we're in an in every way there's lots of high end sort of hats luxury goods textiles that kind of stuff that you know. It's not the classic male L. dominated. trae I mean I'm sure they would have been some in working in those. Yes they were women trunk makers Kirsten silversmiths and there was a woman who is making the labels for bottles of wine import silver things on on on chains so so definitely women and print makers here I think nearby here this one he printed books. Yes yes we're in some pools church. Yes this was a huge book publishing area and in fact just a short distance. Just behind Vidal Sassoon. Right is the the station is okay yes yes yes yes I really wish that. The oldest bookseller similar I didn't know side May poultry there poultry and we're looking at one of the boards about Long life much of it in commerce. She did very well home in her. Business a mother may have been a will match. His father sat me merchant. Mother may be money to she came to be trading in cheap side in the middle of the Eighteenth Century And she is quite well known and then a code toad she joined business that made artificial stone. The business she his food. You know how she came into the business. I imagined she would put some money in not join because our who these women. Ellen Code is the only one I'd ever heard off. It came across her. You know saying about Just finding stuff outlook in this sort of organic way. And there's a big statue of a line it on the south end of Westminster. That's staying code and then also So it's an artificial stone those in immensely hard wearing and weatherproof so it hasn't deteriorated as natural stone as or candy And for a long time the recipe for the stone was lost. I think in the last twenty years. It's been rediscovered little. They've discovered how to make it again. Am I understand this as a business down in Hampshire that now churning out again I in quantum of The stuff and she produced her company produced two isn't existed little bits on Buckingham Palace and elsewhere.

Poland to this amazing substance which she helped to promote which she worked on with numerous others is Made a huge contribution to architecture. She worked with Rob Hutton. International really significant woman. And as you say you know she she's the one pat's perhaps because her the products were in such permanent places apart I suppose in a more male well then are millionaires released. Also the other thing I think is interesting in terms of these. These women we're talking about is I was reading about the lawyer. I then learned that he was made out by some code stowed food. What's coast out? And then I looked up code stone unless I hang on this is at least these women business run by a woman in in my women and amy eighteenth century to seem very very unusual. Which is why I think that really stuck? Am I spend quite interesting. And did seem particularly buildings architecture stone the very male dominated business. I'm asleep and she. She must been quite formidable to stick at it she She didn't marry our skis. So where were we not marrying. I mean really it. Just observing these to these women reading about them. Significant number did not marry We didn't know the reasons the personal the reasons for that. But I from where I'm sunny could be that they didn't want to hand over control of their business to anyone else They like life as the two and They you know they say with a happy to continue without with amounting and they were busy women and they married and had children. They would have to be like Mrs Sleep. Could have fifteen children running the show you come to the end the A podcast. My name is Lena. Augustan son and.
