Two Tenant proposals open today, April 26. The first one is a curious experiment:
Concert Theatre presents
The Tenant
Based on Anne Brontë’s The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and music from Mozart, Scriabin and Brahms.
Music performance and theatre company, Concert Theatre, bring to life Anne Brontë’s groundbreaking work The Tenant of Wildfell Hall with a woman’s valiant struggle for independence and creative freedom. In an innovative hybrid concert-theatre form, a live pianist and two actors tell the moving story through music and speech in a modern gallery setting.

With An-Ting Chang (Director) and Diana Brekalo (Pianist)

Scriabin’s perplexed harmony introduces the mysterious tenant settling at the Wildfell Hall. The protagonist’s innocent youth is narrated colourfully with Mozart’s music. The violin sonata is played by the piano with the actor as a duet between the piano sound and spoken English. Still overlapping with Mozart, however, Brahms’ Rhapsody changes the tune of life to the unfortunate marriage.
Music and drama collide to offer new perspectives on Brontë’s radical feminist text through three composer’s works; Scriabin’s 24 Preludes, Mozart’s Violin Sonata No. 26 and Brahms’ Rhapsody.
