WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

After fifty celebrated years leading the Concertgebouw Orchestra in Holland--during which he famously championed the work of Jewish composer Gustav Mahler--legendary maestro Willem Mengelberg is faced with the unexpected prospect of exile, in retribution for his perceived collaboration with the Nazis during their occupation of the Netherlands. Lohbauer delivers a powerhouse performance in this gripping one-man show, jumping across time and memory as one man examines the choices he's made, in a "conversation" with the memory of his friend and greatest inspiration. In the end, conscience is the surest judge.
