op. 75, 11 pieces pour piano de Prokofiev – mise en scène du texte de Shakespeare
« Performance » subtile qui transporte le public au coeur de l’histoire des amants de Verona et au cœur de la musique de Prokofiev.
“FOR THE SAKE OF LOVE, MUSIC AND WORDS”
We want to transport you to the very core of Romeo and Juliet story; The crossroad between Shakespeare and Prokofiev through an intimate and unprecedented performance beyond the limits of the concert.
Prokofiev’s piano pieces for Romeo and Juliet grant the story the mysterious and magical atmosphere of a fairytale full of light and darkness. The way the hurricane of feelings of the characters is translated into music denotes how Shakespeare and Prokofiev met in a perfect connection, without even living in the same period of history, for the sake of love, music and words.
Both, pianist and actor, will be the storytellers of this tragedy that speaks about very authentic parts of the human being, leaving nothing aside: innocence, tenderness, passion, love, hate, irony, madness and death…But music and poetry can be at the same time terror and beauty, wild and tender.
Music and poetry can carry the weight of a tragedy while bringing us the solace.
We believe the duty of an artist is to face all these feelings and transform them into light:
For the sake of love, music and words.
