And what stirs me so greatly each time he plays a new composition, is the fact that here, in Nohant, in these vulgar surroundings, among kitchen squabbles – something so full of transcendental genius is being produced!”
AMBASSADOR THEATER International Cultural Center PRESENTS
SUMMER AT NOHANT
by JarosÅ‚aw Iwaszkiewicz
Translated by Celina Wieniewska
Directed by Hanna Bondarewska
The Ambassador Theater is delighted to present the Washington DC premiere of Summer at Nohant, a Romantic-period comedy in three acts, celebrating the 200th Anniversary of Frederic Chopin’s birth.
George Sand, the famed French writer and emancipated woman, brings together artists at her celebrated summer estate in Nohant. Frederic Chopin, one of her lovers, echoes the longings and frustrations of the inhabitants as he composes his Sonata in B minor. His music is transcendent and affects everyone in the household.
