Philippine Opera Company opens its 20th anniversary celebration with Stephen Sondheim’s Tony Award-winning musical “PASSION”.
Discover the power of love in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's 1994 Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning musical, “PASSION”. No less than the wondrously complex landscape of the human heart is the subject of this haunting production that many consider to be Sondheim's deepest and his most powerful creation for musical theatre.
The show was based on Ettore Scola's neo-romantic film "Passione d'Amore". “PASSION” deals with a man's relationship with two women. The show begins in 19th-century Milan, where Giorgio -- a handsome young military officer finds himself at a remote base in 1863. He is engaged in a passionate relationship of letters with his beautiful mistress from home, Clara. At the base, however, he catches the attention of the Colonel's sickly cousin, Fosca. She soon not only falls in love with Giorgio, but also becomes obsessed with him. Giorgio attempts to resist her attempts, but eventually he begins to appreciate her total devotion and ends up sleeping with her before she passes away.
To be directed by award-winning director, Robbie Guevara. “PASSION” will run for 10 shows at the Carlos P. Romulo Theater, RCBC Plaza starting September 14 until September 29.
