Nocturne - The Romantic Life of Frederic Chopin

Scripted by Lucy Parham, Nocturne chronicles the romantic life of one of the greatest and most popular composers for solo piano – Frédéric Chopin. The narrative follows his turbulent relationship with the controversial literary figure George Sand, their time together in Majorca, his fragile health and his ultimate demise in poverty in Paris at the age of 39. The readings are interspersed with some of his most loved and poignant compositions.


“Lucy Parham’s trailblazing evening concerts in which she fuses music and words with the help of some our most distinguished thespians, have become one of the must-see events on the musical calendar”


“A passionate, humorous and deeply moving portrait of the relationship between Chopin and Sand”
