A man on a train is flooded with memories. Soon he is confessing to a terrible crime.
But though his circumstances are strange, his claim is even stranger: that the fault lies with Beethoven’s Kreutzer Sonata…
Tolstoy‘s The Kreutzer Sonata became instantly notorious on publication, and was banned in both Russia and America for its radical views on sex and marriage. In Harris's new stage adaptation the actor is accompanied by two musicians, realising Tolstoy’s lifelong wish for a performance of the story with live music.
A tale of haunting intensity, delicious humour and musical echoes of the master.
