Pianist-of-Willesedn-Lane-2

Central Synagogue invites you to an evening at the
St James’ Theatre to see ‘The Pianist of Willesden Lane’ on Tuesday 27th September 2016 at 7:30 pm

Running Time: 1 hour 30 minutes without an interval

Set in Vienna in 1938 and in London during the Blitz, The Pianist of Willesden Lane tells the true story of Lisa Jura, a young Jewish pianist who is dreaming about her concert debut at Vienna’s storied Musikverein concert hall. But with the issuing of new ordinances under the Nazi regime, everything for Lisa changes, except for her love of music and the pursuit of her dream – as she is torn from her family and sent onto the Kindertransport to London.

Featuring the music of Grieg, Beethoven, Debussy, Bach, Chopin and more, performed live on a Steinway concert piano, The Pianist of Willesden Lane is based on performer Mona Golabek’s family story.
