Bold, unexpected and thrilling, Passion is one of Stephen Sondheim’s most emotional works. Intimate, raw, erotic and dark, it explores universal, yet often unspoken, truths. Passion is set at a remote military outpost in 1863 Italy, where a handsome army captain, separated from his beautiful – but married – mistress, is forced to re-evaluate his beliefs about love when he becomes the object of the obsessive, unrelenting passions of Fosca, his Colonel’s plain, sickly cousin.
