At the peak of high society entertainment sits The Pianist’s pianist. impeccable in every aspect, he glides graciously through life, never placing a foot out of step. He is, in a word: perfection. or at least … that’s what he thinks.

The show is centered on, in, under, and around one of the most magni cent of all musical instruments, the grand piano. accompanying this elegant apparatus is the poised pianist himself. only he is so focused on impressing everyone that, before he realizes it, his show has transformed from the highbrow concert he hoped for into the spectacularly amusing catastrophe that is ‘The Pianist’. To salvage his somewhat unsalvageable dignity the pianist draws on his imagination and comes up with some rib-tickling and absurd results. ‘The Pianist’ mixes classical clowning with contemporary circus to produce a charming piece of comedy about the lure of luxury.

Fil-quċċata tad-divertiment tal-alta soċjetà nsibu l-pjanist ta’ “the Pianist”. Impekkabbli minn kull aspett, huwa jgħaddi minn fażi għal oħra tal-ħajja bla ma jmur żmerċ darba. F’kelma waħda, huwa l-perfezzjoni nni sha. jew għall-inqas … hekk jaħseb hu.

Din il-wirja hija ċċentrata fuq, ġo, taħt u madwar wieħed mill-aktar strumenti mużikali manji ċi li jeżistu: il-grand piano. jakkumpanja lil dan l-apparat eleganti hemm il-pjanist innifsu, kollu kalma u dinjità. Hu jkun tant moħħu biss biex jimpressjona lil kulħadd li, qabel ma jirnexxilu jintebaħ, il-wirja tiegħu tinbidel minn kunċert ta’ livell għoli, kif hu kien jittama, f’katastrofu spettakolarment divertenti li hu “the Pianist”. biex jiġbor ftit ġieħu, li di ċli ħafna biex jinġabar, il-pjanist juża ftit l-immaġinazzjoni tiegħu u joħroġ b’soluzzjonijiet assurdi u li jaqsmuk bid-daħk. F’“the Pianist” insibu taħlita ta’ bu unerija klassika u ċirku kontemporanju li toħloq kummiedja gustuża dwar il-faxxinu tal-ħajja lussuża.
