“A Joke Before the Gallows” libretto by David James Brock
April 24 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm EDT
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 blackly funny, thought-provoking performance directed by Tom Diamond.
