She Was Despised: Handel And Susannah CibberThe Handel House Museum looks at the life of actress and singer Susannah Cibber, who was born 300 years ago. Cibber's career appeared to be doomed after a divorce scandal, but recovered after Handel chose her to perform in the first performance of his Messiah in 1742. She went on to become one of the leading figures of the era, and her story is told in an absorbing exhibition.
