A musical journey of hope and survival
An exquisite musical memoir, The Pianist of Willesden Lane is based on the true story of a young Jewish musical prodigy, Lisa Jura, whose talent was her ticket to escape Nazi-ruled Vienna for the relative safety of London during the Blitzkrieg. In this inspirational show, Jura’s daughter, Grammy-nominated piano virtuoso Mona Golabek, performs some of the world’s most beautiful music as she shares her mother’s riveting story of survival. 

Featuring the music of such greats as Debussy, Bach, Grieg, Beethoven, and Chopin, performed live on a Steinway concert piano.


I’m thrilled to finally have international hit maker Hershey Felder back in his hometown for the Montreal premiere of this remarkable production. Showcasing the signature style that made him such a star, Mona Golabek’s awe-inspiring talent, and her mother’s heart-wrenching tale, this production is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
