The Cider Mill Playhouse presents Bach at Leipzig
The Cider Mill Playhouse presents <i>Bach at Leipzig</i>
Online interview audio now available Dennis Fox and Eric Oleson speak with WSKG's Bill Snydeer Bach at Leipzig by Itamar Moses

Leipzig, Germany, 1722: Johann Kuhnau, revered organist of the Thomaskirche, suddenly dies, leaving his post vacant. The town council invites musicians to audition for the coveted position, among them young Johann Sebastian Bach. In an age when musicians rely on patronage from the nobility or the church to pursue their art, the post at a prominent church in a cultured city is a near guarantee of fame and fortune—which is why some of the candidates are willing to go to any lengths to secure it. A fugue-like, often hilarious web of bribery, blackmail, and betrayal!
