02.15.11 Sting & Trudie Styler In ''Twin Spirits''At Mark Taper Forum In Los Angeles, February 15...
After it's highly successful staging in NYC in June 2010, Culture Project (Allan Buchman, Artistic Director) will present the West Coast debut of Twin Spirits featuring Sting and Trudie Styler, an intimate theatrical event devised and directed for the stage by Tony Award-winner John Caird on Tuesday, February 15, 8:00PM, at Mark Taper Forum at Music Center of Los Angeles County on 135 N. Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA.
Twin Spirits is a poetic meditation on the passionate relationship between composer Robert Schumann and his wife, Clara Wieck. The performance will feature Sting and Styler reading from letters between Robert and Clara while their story is interwoven with music composed by Robert - whose spirit will be embodied by violin, baritone Scott Hendricks and pianist Jonathan Kelly - and by Clara, who is evoked by pianist Natasha Paremski, cellist Sara Sant'Ambrogio and soprano Camille Zamora.
A portion of the evening's proceeds will be used to support the ongoing work of Culture Project, the Royal Opera House and Mustardseed Arts Trust.
