Re:Sound's 'Duet'

17 October 2016, 9:45pm 14 June 2024 - 8:02am


A new play with music by Robert Schumann

 “The most interesting thing about the musical genius that is Schumann is that there are two of them…”

In spite of opposition, Robert Schumann marries his beloved Clara. Their wedding party is one to remember and, as the anniversaries go by, the couple are determined to keep the magic and music of that occasion alive. However, although Clara and Robert return each year to the drinking house where they celebrated their union, nothing else in their lives remains the same. Each return visit seems to tear them apart; jealousy, frustration, revolution, insanity, family and music strain their relationship to breaking point. Has the Schumann’s harmonious duet become two discordant musical lines?

Join Robert and Clara Schumann in an evening of song and celebration, despair and love as they sing their way through the years and invite you into their glorious yet deeply human story. 

An interactive theatrical experience weaving together the lieder of Robert Schumann with an original script from the company who brought you After Party

Places are limited, so please book your free ticket in advance.
