(The Chagall Musical)
A remarkable Klezmer musical based on the love story of artist Marc Chagall and his poet wife, Bella, whose floating images are the stuff of dreams. Paired with Violins of Hope, Pittsburgh’s exhibition of instruments rescued from the Holocaust, our show depicts triumphant survivors of the 20th century’s darkest times.
