BACH AT LEIPZIG

“A remarkably silly, yet intellectually stirring comedy.” ~Queen Anne News
Leipzig. June, 1722.

The musical director of St. Thomas Church and master of St. Thomas school has died, and six of the best organists in Germany compete for his vacant post. The title guarantees fame and fortune through all of Europe, and the ambitious men resort to blackmail, betrayal, and other crimes to secure their future.

"Bach at Leipzig" strikes chords with dexterous wordplay and sophisticated comedic wit. Nothing short of a farcical fugue, this play delivers a collision of ideologies about art, God, and humanity, which resolves in a brilliantly crafted ending.

Written by Itamar Moses

Directed by Darrell Rushton
