In the mid 19th century when virtually no women were composers or performers, Clara Schumann did both. She was also Robert Schumann's wife and mother of eight. In a new play "Clara/Clara", two actresses simultaneously portray the two sides of Clara's competing priorities � composer/pianist and wife. This light and entertaining play also incorporates compositions of both Clara and Robert that were written during their courtship and 16 year marriage. Montreal soprano Emily Forsyth and Vancouver mezzo-soprano Debi Wong embody the competing identities of Clara Schumann, with Vancouver's Damien Jinks at the piano. Written and directed by Adrienne Paulson. The theme of "Clara/Clara" will resonate with anyone who has ever had to balance Love and Career. At the Pyatt Hall in the new VSO School of Music. Tickets from or at the door.
