Matinee: January 26, 2:00 PM;
Set in Germany 1722, at the Thomaskirche, the prestigious and lucrative post of organist has suddenly become available upon the death of Johann Kuhnau. Seven musicians, all named either Georg or Johann, arrive to compete for the post. Insecurities, shortfalls of talent, and wildly clashing ideologies collide, resulting in a "fugue-like" farcical web of bribery, blackmail, and betrayal set against the backdrop of Enlightenment questions about humanity, God, and art.
Performed on the James Leon Chapman Stage
