The Well-Tempered Clavier

Musical theatre after Johann Sebastian Bach and László Krasznahorkai
Direction: David Marton

A co-production with MC93 Bobigny

A work by Johann Sebastian Bach forms the basis of a theatrical evening. What appears to be the epitome of a total world of sound conceals a real story full of philosophical and political wrangling – in a community in which everyone is searching for their own sound.
