The Kreutzer Sonata, a PICT Premiere
The Kreutzer Sonata by Nancy Harris based upon the novella by Leo Tolsto. A Pittsburgh Premiere starring Richard McMillan and directed by Andrew S. Paul.
Meet Pozdynyshev, an enigmatic stranger in a smoky rail car, weaving a tale of love, loss and betrayal. Hear his sensuous wife playing piano while his old friend plays violin, the Kreutzer Sonata between them, powerful and evocative. Was this music the soundtrack to their illicit passion, or has Pozdynyshev made a terrible mistake? Irish playwright Nancy Harris has transformed Tolstoy’s classic novella, inspired by this oft-played sonata, into a theatrical experience you’ll not soon forget.
