A Proust Sonata
Thursday, Nov. 16, 2017 – Saturday, Nov. 18, 2017
Enter the creative world of Marcel Proust’s literary masterpiece and the music, paintings, and people that inspired it. A Proust Sonata is a multimedia concert-theater work conceived and directed by Sarah Rothenberg, Artistic and General Director of Da Camera. The production is inspired by Proust's early 20th century masterpiece In Search of Lost Time and interweaves text, music, and image into an innovative multi-media performance. Pianist Sarah Rothenberg is joined by a Tony Award-winning design team and a cast that includes professional actors and musicians together with students from Rice's Shepherd School of Music. The music of Fauré, Shumann, Debussy, Chopin, Ravel, Beethoven, and Reynaldo Hahn evoke the author’s themes of memory, lost childhood, fashionable Parisian salons, and the final reclusive years when he withdrew from society to complete his magnum opus.
