Kupka’s Piano travels back in space-time to Germany on the verge of WWI to perform one of the masterpieces of musical modernism, Arnold Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire. Based on the poems of Albert Giraud, this work explores the bewitched world of the clown Pierrot as he ruminates on desire, decadence, and death. Part melodrama, part cabaret, part song-cycle, Pierrot Lunaire still captivates audiences and stimulates the imagination today.
