Twin Spirits is a poetic meditation on the passionate relationship between composer Robert Schumann and wife Clara Wieck.  Sting joins his wife, actress, producer and philanthropist Trudie Styler to read from the letters between Robert and Clara.  Their story is illustrated and interwoven with music composed by Robert – whose spirit will be embodied by pianist Jeremy Denk, baritone Nathan Gunn and violinist Joshua Bell – and by Clara, who is evoked by pianist Natasha Paremski, soprano Camille Zamora, and cellist Nina Kotova.

A portion of the proceeds from the performance will benefit the Music Unites Youth Choir, bringing together public high school students from across the five boroughs.

Twin Spirits was first performed in 2005, and was recorded before a small audience in a small studio space at London’s Royal Opera House in 2007, and released on the Opus Arte label in 2009.
