Divine Fire – the story of Fryderyk Chopin & George Sand in Music & Words
Viv McLean piano
Susan Porrett narrator
We are delighted to present our acclaimed words and music production Divine Fire at Ulverston Music Festival in the picturesque Lake District.
Featuring some of Chopin’s loveliest piano works, Divine Fire traces the relationship between Fryderyk Chopin and the authoress George Sand, from their ﬁrst meeting in Paris in 1836 until their parting in 1849.
The story unfolds through a compelling, dramatic narration of events by the RSC, National Theatre and TV actress Susan Porrett, interspersed with ﬁery Scherzos, heartrending Ballades, intimate lyrical Nocturnes and stirring Polonaises, performed by acclaimed concert pianist Viv McLean.
absorbing, moving and beautifully presented
