Can music drive a man to murder?
Experience a new piece of ‘orchestral theatre’ by one of the UK’s leading playwrights.
Inspired by Tolstoy’s great tale of sexual jealousy, Kreutzer vs Kreutzer ventures behind the closed door of the music room into a world of ungoverned passion.
Featuring full performances of Beethoven’s ‘Kreutzer’ Violin Sonata and Janácek’s String Quartet of the same name, Laura Wade’s play explores the love triangle between three great works.
Jemima Rooper (Lost in Austen; One Man, Two Guvnors) and Samuel West (Mr Selfridge) star.
For this special project, the Royal Festival Hall stage is transformed into an intimate performance space. The performers face a limited audience of 350, seated on the stage and in the choir stalls.
Katherine Parkinson is indisposed and is replaced by Jemima Rooper for this performance.
