Of Pigs and Pianos is the new one-woman show exploring Sara Davis Buechner’s extraordinary life story in music and words. This theatrical and musical evening consists of excerpts from her recently-completed autobiography, illustrated with luminous piano performances, visual imagery and dramatic narration. Ms. Buechner is one of America’s most well-known classical pianists, as well as one of the first transgender women to transition in mid-career (in the 1990s). She now shares her own tale of courage and integrity in the face of overwhelming personal and professional obstacles, to LGBTQIA+ groups around the world, and opens that story in a delightful and absorbing new way with this unique showcase for her astounding talents.
Featuring piano music of Haydn, Mozart, Chopin, Ferruccio Busoni, Federico Longás, Yukiko Nishimura, Péter Wolf, and Sara Davis Buechner herself.
Of Pigs and Pianos is produced by Ms. Buechner in association with Orietta Crispino of Theaterlab and Yamaha Artist Services under the direction of Bonnie Barrett and Makia Matsumura.
