Bach at Leipzig – About

Bach at Leipzig

by Itamar Moses

May 17 – June 15
Previews may 15 & 16 

Leipzig, 1722. Germany’s most renowned music director is dead at the keyboard. As the country’s greatest organists descend to vie for the job, melodies of rivalry, trickery and blackmail compose a fugue of plots and counterplots. Rooted in history but reveling in flights of fiction, Bach at Leipzig is deliciously scored with wild and witty revelations.

“Imagine the Marx Brothers and Tom Stoppard collaborating on a play.” – Milwaukee Sentinal
