Inspired by the music of
SERGEI RACHMANINOFF
Preludes is a musical fantasia set in the hypnotized mind of Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninoff. After the disastrous premiere of his first symphony, the young Rachmaninoff suffers from writer's block. He begins daily sessions with a therapeutic hypnotist, in an effort to overcome depression and return to composing.

THE STORY

ACT ONE

Preludes takes place on a jumble of a set, packed with pianos and desks, a kitchen nook in the corner. It’s just as packed with anachronisms. It takes place in the head of Rachmaninoff when he was deeply distraught.

The toast of the Moscow music scene at age 19, he finds his first symphony savaged by critics just five years later. As he struggles with writer's block, he consults hypnotherapist Nikolai Dahl. Their sessions drive the show.
