Premiere of "Clara Haskil, Prelude and Fugue" at Rond Point

A gripping and sensitive play by Safy Nebbou


The new show at the Théâtre du Rond Point tells the story of the famous pianist Clara Haskil, played by Laetitia Casta. Charlie Chaplin said, "I've been around three geniuses: Professor Einstein, Winston Churchill, & Clara Haskil."

In 1960, on the eve of a concert, Clara Haskil fell down an escalator in the Brussels train station.
