    What sacrifices are made for greatness?

    The celebrated and world-renowned Lazara String Quartet is struggling to prepare for their highest-profile performance when their gifted but volatile violist mysteriously disappears. The play is interwoven with rich and powerful music that propels this New England Premiere forward. Violinist-turned-playwright Michael Hollinger's Opus has tempers flaring and egos clashing when a new member is introduced and the group's secrets are revealed.

    “…the play is for the most part marked by a nuanced intelligence in its depiction of the complex relationship between musicians’ lives and their art.” The New York Times

    “…you’ll never quite listen to a chamber music group the same way again. “ The New York Post

    Approximately 2 hours, including intermission.

      This was a great production! One of the best- blocked I have seen in years. The play itself is a splendid study of group process. Benjamin Evett was particularly subtle and powerful at the same... Expand
