THE PLAY

Synopsis: In 1740, Antonio Vivaldi is commissioned to teach a woman to play violin before the King of France … in six weeks’ time. Is such a performance possible? And why would either agree to this? In this lush and resonant play by Canadian Mieko Ouchi, the challenges of teaching and the beauty of music are laid bare.

THE ROLES

Woman: Female identifying. A noblewoman in the French court circa 1740. Some skill with the violin an asset, but not necessary. Age range 25–45. Open to female-identifying or non-binary performers. Applications from IBPOC performers encouraged.

Vivaldi: Male identifying. Italian composer, violin master and Catholic priest. Age range 40–70. Open to male-identifying or non-binary performers. Applications from IBPOC performers encouraged.
