From Nancy McNary Smith:
"Martin Giles gave the performance of a lifetime in his role in The Kreutzer Sonata. This role and this performance was a transformation beyond comprehension. There was not a stock response; every gesture, movement, intonation, every bit of timing -- was new, true, un-nervingly on mark. He had the audience in his palm, from the first seconds of the performance to the end.
This has to be one of the most amazing theater experiences of my 40 years in Pittsburgh, subscribing to most of the theaters in town. I'm so glad I was there."
In "The Kreutzer Sonata" audiences travel with Pozdynyshev, an enigmatic stranger 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 into a theatrical experience you'll not soon forget.
This Pittsburgh premiere stars Martin Giles with an unforgettable performance featuring Beethoven's masterpiece performed by violinist Juan Jaramillo and pianist Alaine Fink.
