The UK premiere of Brian Friel’s new play PERFORMANCES will be an important event in the London performance calendar. It is a unique mix of drama from the hand of Ireland’s finest living playwright, Brian Friel, and music from one of the great composers of the 20th century, Leos Janacek.
By Brian Friel
Director Lou Stein
Featuring the Brodsky Quartet
Starring Henry Goodman and Rosamund Pike
The play will particularly appeal to lovers of classical music who will enjoy the added value of dramatic insight into Janacek’s creation of his iconic string quartet, Intimate Letters.
The play explores Janacek’s own attitudes towards his art and personal life and looks at the effect of his obsessive romantic relationship with a much younger married woman, Kamila Stosslova, on its composition.
