The Ebell of Los Angeles' PLAYdate is delighted to present a reading of POLONAISE FANTASIE: STORY OF A PIANIST by INNA FALIKS
Directed by Cameron Watson
Internationally renowned pianist Inna Faliks tells her own story through a unique blending of music and words. Her acclaimed interpretations of Bach, Mozart and Chopin, as well as new compositions including her own, illuminate her dramatic story. Interwoven with the music, actress Rebecca Mozo reads the monologue of Faliks’ life: as a young girl in the 1980s she came to the U.S. from Odessa, Ukraine with her parents to escape oppression and pursue her dream of becoming a concert pianist.
