Southern Rep, in partnership with MESA Production Company, presents 33 VARIATIONS, an elegant waltz between past and present, fact and speculation, a mother and daughter, and art and life.

One of classical music's enduring riddles is why Ludwig van Beethoven devoted four years of his diminishing life writing 33 variations, known as the Diabelli Variations, (one of the greatest works ever composed for piano) based on a humble waltz. Two hundred years later, a modern-day music scholar is driven to solve the mystery even as her own health and relationship with her daughter crumbles. The result is an extraordinary American play about passion, parenthood, and the moments of beauty that can transform a life, accompanied throughout by a concert pianist performing one of the greatest sets of piano variations ever written.

33 VARIATIONS is being presented as an Educational & Awareness Campaign for The ALS Association of Louisiana/Mississippi Chapter and Team Gleason. Help create a world without ALS!
