Autumn Sonata

A story about the need for love and acceptance, about an inherited emotional coldness, about the psychological costs of creativity.
A theatrical version of a film script by Ingmar Bergman, a legendary director, one of the most important filmmakers of the 20th century cinema.

After years of absence, Charlotte, a world-famous pianist, accepts her daughter Eva's invitation and visits her modest home in Norway. What will result from the collision of their two separate worlds?

"In fact, I was completely unaware of everything about love – tenderness, touching, closeness, warmth. It was only through music that I could express my feelings".
