After performing at spaces like BAM, The Jewish Museum, French Institute-Alliance Fraçais, and City University of New York, as well as venues in Venice, Italy, and more, the Ensemble for the Romantic Century announced that its upcoming 2017–2018 will play at Manhattan’s Pershing Square Signature Center Off-Broadway.
The season marks the Off-Broadway premieres of Van Gogh’s Ear (August 10–September 10), Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (December 21–January 7, 2018), and Tschaikovsky: None But the Lonely Heart (May 17–June 17). All three productions will be directed by Donald T. Sanders, ERC’s Director of Theatrical Productions.
ERC’s work combines plays and music of the time period for one-of-a-kind theatrical experiences. Founded by pianist Eve Wolf in 2001, the company presents a dramatic approach and alternative to chamber music concerts. The company describes itself as such: “The music’s historical context is reinforced through its connections with history, politics, philosophy, psychology, and the other arts to create a compelling new performance experience.”
