Performance synopsis

The story presents the fate of three pianists who were connected by an extraordinary bond – a romantic triangle. The materials used to create the performance are their letters and diaries, full of the mutual respect, attachment, and unusual tenderness of Clara Schumann, Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms. The performance shows their sensitivity, love, parenthood, friendship, mental illnesses, adolescence, life experiences, limitations and weaknesses related to the human psyche and body.
