A chamber music play in English exploring the life of Mademoiselle Nadia Boulanger.
Written by Mina Fisher
In an emotionally incisive one woman tour-de-force marrying chamber music with theater, singer/actor Adriana Zabala explores the memories and secrets behind the legendary and charismatic music teacher, Nadia Boulanger (1887-1979). Featuring music of Gabriel Fauré, Lili Boulanger, Jean Françaix, Astor Piazzolla, Aaron Copland, and others, Nadia’s memories are ignited; her life amid loss and dreams, struggling to find success in male-dominated art, the deaths of her father and lover, the complex relationship she had with “the true genius of the family”, her sister Lili, and the “crazy pleasure” she discovered and cultivated as one of the most esteemed and legendary teachers of the modern era.
