Hershey Felder as Monsieur Chopin
About Hershey Felder as Monsieur Chopin
Originally created in 2006, following a sold-out national tour, this intimate theatrical event returns to San Diego in a new updated production featuring the romantic story and music of the Polish pianist-composer, Fryderyk Chopin. The story begins at Chopin’s salon in Paris where Monsieur Chopin will teach a piano lesson that actually took place in March 1848, just days after the February 1848 revolution. As the piano lesson unfolds, he reveals secrets about the art of the piano and composition, as well as secrets about himself. In this reprisal, Hershey Felder revisits Monsieur Chopin and delves deep into the music and psyche of the man, considered by his contemporaries, and now by history, as the true “Poet of the Piano.”
As he did last year with Beethoven, Hershey Felder will feature some of the composer’s most beautiful enduring music while entertaining us in his unique and theatrical style, as only Hershey can.
