David Katz in MUSE of FIRE
Penobscot Theatre Company
MUSE of FIRE: When an aging European Maestro will stop at nothing to mold an apprentice in the flames of his passion for music, the young man discovers that great conductors are not born, they are forged—in fire.
MUSE of FIRE is David Katz's extraordinary one-man play about the art of conducting, great classical music, and secrets of the famed Monteux School in Hancock. Premiered in Maine in 2005, and now touring internationally, no other work of theater so vividly conveys the power of music to open hearts and touch the soul. It is at once gripping, humorous and ultimately deeply moving. The Chicago Sun Times hailed MUSE of FIRE for "unique depth and humor, tremendous verve and palpable passion."
