Eccentric Austrian composer meets live string quartet.
Self-confessed genius Arnold Schoenberg has taken to his bed in 1951 Los Angeles believing that this will be his last day alive. The clock is ticking toward midnight. His numerology is never wrong.
Struggling in an unappreciative Hollywood, Arnold reflects on an earlier life of fame filled with glorious Viennese music and where his modern compositions caused riots, where friends and lovers constantly betrayed him and where a failed ‘artist’ became Führer and forced his unwanted exile.
Starring Gavin Rutherford, In Bed with Schoenberg is a delicious Viennese pastry filled with comedy, drama and exquisite live classical music.
Developed from an original commission by Chamber Music New Zealand.
