DESCRIPTION

 

You're never really done for, as long as you've got a good story and someone to tell it to...
 

On New Year's Day 1900, a crew member on an ocean liner SS Virginia, finds a deserted infant and decides to adopt him, nicknaming him "1900." As an adult, the eccentric 1900 grows into a remarkable musician aboard the boat. Rumors of his brilliant piano playing eventually reach the shore, and his pal Max believes that success surely awaits 1900 on land. The only problem, however, is that the enigmatic pianist is loath to embrace life away from the ship.

 

Alessandro Baricco’s first written monologue will premiere on December 4, 2017 at Simeio Theatre in Athens, Greece. The story became popular in 1998 with the release of the motion picture titled “The Legend of 1900”, by Giuseppe Tornatore. The story focuses on the life of the greatest pianist ever lived and played on the Ocean, narrated by his closest friend and trumpet, Max Tooney.

 

The show will run until January 9, 2018; shows given twice weekly, Mondays and Tuesdays.

 

Performed and co-directed by Christos Karnakis.
