Tony Award nominee Kathleen Chalfant (Angels in America, Wit) will star in the U.S. premiere of Felix and Clara Nov. 3 at the Church of St. Luke in the Fields.
Penned by Dutch composer Jacques Bank, Felix and Clara centers on the troubled relationship of Schumann and her son Felix. A chorus will sing the voice of Felix with Chalfant in the role of Clara. The performance will take place at 8 PM.
The evening also promises the world premiere of Four Songs by Frank Brickle.
