"The Waltz" - A Play about Camille Claudel

Event Date/Time

Apr 6, 2013
6:30 pm until 9:00 pm


This original work, conceived, written, and directed by local playwright Carolyn Kirsch, explores Camille Claudel's tempestuous relationship with Auguste Rodin, her ongoing struggles to be recognized in 20th-Century Parisian art circles, and the question of her descent into madness. A gifted sculptress, Claudel left a magnificent artistic legacy. The five-person reading, underscored by the music of Claude Debussy, will be held in Hill-Stead Museum's Drawing Room.

Carolyn Kirsch has performed in 15 Broadway shows. She was a member of the Original Company of "A Chorus Line," and appeared in "CoCo" with Katharine Hepburn, and "Dear World" with Angela Lansbury. This production is being presented in conjunction with Herstory Theater.

Cost $15 for Hill-Stead members, $20 for members-to-be.
