January 31 - February 8, 2014 : THE MUSIC LESSON
Weaving together the music of Bach, with memories of the Bosnian war and the universal conflicts between teacher and student.
The Music Lesson tells the story of Irena and her husband Ivan - two musicians who escaped the war in Sarajevo to start a new life in Pittsburgh. Shifting elegantly from past to present and resonating with powerful music, this is the tale of two countries, two families and the way they teach and heal each other.
Though the subject matter sounds a bit depressing, it’s just the opposite. The play is upbeat and full of laughter and hope. Irena and Ivan throw themselves totally into their roles resulting in the audience empathizing with these two unique characters. The all American family they interact with through the course of the drama contrasts their Balkan flavour beautifully.
