World premiere performance at FITS Sibiu: "SHAKESPEARE - BACH/La Main du Temps"

The performance "SHAKESPEARE - BACH/La Main du Temps", with Charlotte Rampling and Sonia Wieder-Atherton, one of the most awaited performances of the 18th edition of the Sibiu International Theatre Festival (FITS), will take place for the first time in Romania, on August 26, and the tickets went on sale on Thursday, informs a press release sent to AGERPRES. A France-UK production, "SHAKESPEARE - BACH/La Main du Temps" brings to the stage sonnets by William Shakespeare, suites by JS Bach, Charlotte Rampling - voice and Sonia Wieder-Atherton - cello, "so that the light of an encounter may shine to the rhythm of two languages, through the song of their voice". "Memory often returns, bringing with it faces, names, fragments of stories and sounds. This is the place Shakespeare's sonnets arise from, sometimes far-off, sometimes of a penetrating presence. As if addressed to these faces or as if they were them, the faces, the ones that are telling us. The cello itself, along Bach's suites, brings back fragments of memory and carves time," says Sonia Wieder-Atherton about this performance. Charlotte Rampling, one of the greatest personalities in the world of theater and film, will receive a star this year on Celebrities' Alley in Sibiu, during the ceremony that will take place on Friday, August 27, at 18:00 hrs, in central Sibiu, on Cetatii street.
