Släpstick Presents: Schërzo


  • Category: Music & Dance

Full Description

After demolishing more than their fair share of theater and festival stages, Släpstick is turning their mischievous attentions to the grand concert halls of Europe and beyond! Scherzö: a clown-esque concerto for the ages, in which a seemingly highbrow evening of classical repertoire glissandos into a bacchanal of comical mishaps and absurdity. Neither foppy-wigged composers nor their magnum opus is safe from this buffoonery. Behold a marble bust of Beethoven come alive and challenge his fellow sculptures to a yodeling battle-royale! Clutch your breast as Schubert’s Erlkönig lament’s his dying son while prancing on a trampoline! Gasp in amazement as the ghost of George Gershwin accompanies a flotilla of rolling instruments- an entire symphony orchestra played by only five musicians and an inflatable conductor! It’s Chaplin meets Tchaikovsky, Buster versus Bernstein, and Groucho Marx does Mozart, all rolled up into one raucous oeuvre that deftly mocks the “pomp” in Pomp and Circumstance. Släpstick presents Scherzö: an evening of classical music as you’ve never experienced before. Don’t call it a come Bach, it sure ain’t no symphony, and it’s SO not a sonata! Scherzö!
