A MUSICAL STORY BRIMMING WITH DARK HUMOUR, A JOKE BEFORE THE GALLOWS CELEBRATES THE DRAMATIC MUSIC OF CHOPIN
Polish composer Chopin is much celebrated for his iconic writing for piano. His bold, dramatic scherzos are in opposition to their translation: ‘scherzo’ means joke!Join internationally acclaimed concert pianist Adam Sherkin performing Chopin’s four masterpiece scherzi alongside vivid monologues written by David James Brock, in this darkly funny, thought-provoking performance directed by Tom Diamond. The premiere is a mixed media event with film and live performance.
A Joke Before the Gallows is a Tapestry Opera and Piano Lunaire co-production
