Pierrot in the Moonlight

As Schoenberg’s protagonist travels between three tableaux – Moondrunk, Night and Homesick – he is caught in freeze-frames of newly-composed music which shed light on the themes of love, sex, violence, crime and blasphemy.

Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire was premiered 100 years ago, yet still sounds fresh today. In our unique production, Dark Inventions presents this seminal work in a relaxed cabaret setting and performed with the striking English translation by Roger Marsh. Schoenberg’s three sections are divided and united by new music by the project’s curators, Martin Scheuregger and Christopher Leedham.
