The pianist legend


Sorry, this entry is only available in European Spanish.


“The Legend of the Pianist” is an adaptation of the monologue “Novecento”, from Alessandro Baricco, who intends to evoke by means of an installation of artist Samy Benmayor and the live music of Camilo Salinas, the nostalgia and loneliness that Novecento experiences throughout his life. The play tells the story of a child who is abandoned by immigrants on a transatlantic called Virginian.This child is found by a sailor, who baptizes it with the name of Novecento.Through the story, we will find out that this child will spend the rest of his life on the ship, from which he will never go down and live there to becoming the greatest pianist in the world.
