A BENEFIT TO SUPPORT PERRY-MANSFIELD’S NEW WORKS FESTIVAL The New Works Festival, now in its 15th year, brings performing arts professionals together in the Rocky Mountains to develop new pieces of theatre and dance while mentoring new talent in each medium. Presented under the artistic direction of Andrew Leynse, Artistic Director of Primary Stages, NYC and with sponsorship from The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust, the New Works Festival continues Perry-Mansfield’s founding principle of nurturing new talent with new work.
THE MORINI STRAD
Inspired by the true New York story of concert violinist Erica Morini and her legendary Stradivarius violin, The Morini Strad is a delicate duet between Erica, a difficult former child prodigy, and Brian, a stubbornly independent violin maker she hires to restore and then sell her beloved Strad.
As Brian makes the arrangements, the question of what will become of the priceless instrument threatens to destroy their unexpected friendship. Through classical music and fiery confrontations, Brian and Erica must face the choices they’ve made about their music and their lives.
Tickets are $100 and may be purchased in advance by contacting the Perry-Mansfield office at 800-430-2787 or email@example.com.
