A Night in Vienna with Mozart and Freud
7 p.m. At the JCC
The JCC is pleased to present Julie Jaffee Nagel in a Gala Evening: From Vienna to London. The evening will highlight an original conversation (composed by Julie Jaffee Nagel) between Sigmund Freud and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Mozart’s great Piano Sonata in A Minor will also be performed by Louis Nagel.
The program will be introduced by Carol Seigel, Director of the Freud Museum in London. She will take us on a verbal and visual tour of the Museum. The Freud Museum, at 20 Maresfield Gardens in Hampstead, was the home of Sigmund Freud and his family when they escaped Nazi annexation of Austria in 1938. It remained the family home until Anna Freud, the youngest daughter, died in 1982. The centerpiece of the museum is Freud's study, preserved just as it was during his lifetime. Undoubtedly the most famous piece of furniture in all the collection is Freud's psychoanalytic couch, on which all of his patients reclined.
The Gala evening will conclude with lavish Viennese desserts
Cost: $20 for members and $30 non-members. Space is limited. Advance reservations are required.
