Passion

By Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine

Paperback £14.99

A musical based on a 19th-century Italian novel, Passion tells of the consequences of a sickly woman's love for a handsome young army captain. From the award-winning writing partnership behind Sunday in the Park with George and Into the Woods.

Best Musical, Evening Standard Awards 2010

Giorgio is a lusty officer in the Italian army, transferred to a remote outpost under the watchful eye of Colonel Ricci. Ricci's ward, Fosca, is a sickly and unattractive girl, who falls heavily in love with Giorgio at first sight. This is a love so compelling that she gradually wins the young officer over – but at what cost?
