Marcel Proust’s epic literary masterpiece comes to life in a stunning new production from Da Camera of Houston created by artistic director Sarah Rothenberg. Equal parts concert and theater, A Proust Sonata transforms music, painting and literature into a moving performance.
Excerpts from In Search of Lost Time and the memoirs of Proust’s housekeeper and confidant, Céleste Albaret, are interwoven with sound collage, paintings, photographs, and the music that inspired Proust to evoke the author’s themes of memory and childhood as well as Parisian salons and his final reclusive years when he withdrew from society to complete his magnum opus.
