More information.

A tale of paranoia, jealousy and revenge, Tolstoy’s novella provides rich pickings for a bravura one-man show.

After marrying, Pozdnyshev experiences both passionate love and agonising conflict. What follows is a story of sexual jealousy, murder - and Beethoven.

An extraordinary examination of the extremities of the human psyche, The Kreutzer Sonata is virtuosic story-telling of immense power and intensity. A literary and live music feast, including Beethoven’s famous Violin Sonata No 9.
