Actor Tony Tsendeas as Sigmund Freud. November, 2010. Make-up by Mark Redfield.

Tsendeas is an old friend and wonderful actor. He was asked to play Freud in a program at the Baltimore Symphony in November 2010 called "Analyze This: Mahler and Freud", and he asked me to help with his make-up.Tsendeas as Freud in rehearsal at the BSO, November 4th, 2010.

From the program description: Inspired by the BSO’s hit CSI: Beethoven program in 2008, this program reenacts the little known meeting in 1910 between Gustav Mahler (Richard Pilcher) and famous psychiatrist Dr. Sigmund Freud (Tony Tsendeas), where the two grappled with tensions and conflict that affected Mahler’s entire musical output and later led to marital discord. Join Maestra Marin Alsop and “Dr. Freud” on the couch as they psychoanalyze the essence of Mahler’s relationship with his wife Alma, his music and his crippling fear of death.

"Analyze This: Mahler and Freud" was written and directed by Didi Balle.
