Martha Gellhorn, the first war journalist of modernity, meets Ernest Hemingway in a Havana Bar.  Almost ten years younger than Hemingway, a confident war reporter from influential house, she is confronted with a man who shares her penchant for casual outdoor clothing, the passion for the trouble spots of the thirties and forties, her unadorned reports from the war front, and also the joy of big-game hunting and deep-sea sailing.

The proven entertaining and poetic combination of text, music and scenic interpretation shows the lives of two writers in Spain, Cuba, Africa and their journalistic and literary output during the Second World War in the 8th part of Anna Sutyagina’s Salon series.

The music program consists of compositions for voice, trumpet and piano by Arcas, Bernstein, Copland, Gershwin and Kabalevsky.
