The older, celebrated and scandalous novelist, George Sand lures the fragile young musician, Frédéric Chopin, to her rooms one evening. A passionate relationship develops. Step by step, the play traces the course of their doomed affair from its ardent beginning to its tragic end when the fatally ill Chopin breaks off the relationship, placing his art ahead of a love that he fears will smother his creativity and diminish his musical legacy.The older, celebrated and scandalous novelist, George Sand lures the fragile young musician, Frédéric Chopin, to her rooms one evening.
