Hershey Felder as Monsieur Chopin

January 2 - 19, 2020

Leo K. Theater

Monsieur Chopin features the romantic story and music of the Polish pianist-composer Fryderyk Chopin, set in Chopin's salon where he will teach a piano lesson that actually took place in March, 1848, just days after the February 1848 revolution. As the piano lesson unfolds, Chopin reveals secrets about the art of the piano and composition, as well as secrets about himself. Hershey Felder delves deep into the music and psyche of the man, considered by his contemporaries, and now by history, as the true "Poet of the Piano," In Monsieur Chopin, Hershey features some of the pianist-composer's most beautiful and enduring music while entertaining us in his unique and theatrical style.

 

“Entertaining and enlightening. Monsieur Chopin reminds us that music can sustain an artist’s soul the way no person or country ever could.”
