A fully-staged theatrical production, "In the Garden of Dreams" takes you inside an imagined Viennese music room where a solitary pianist plays Brahms’ last works and which gradually transforms into the symbol-rich garden of Schoenberg’s song cycle "The Book of the Hanging Gardens". Drawing on Freud, Strindberg, and the art of Max Klinger and Gustav Klimt, the production moves from dawn to the dark of night, from a protected Viennese interior to a decaying landscape where reality, dream, memory and hallucination merge in the mind of an obsessed lover.
