How can composers Arnold Schoenberg, Piotr Tchaikovsky and Carlo Gesualdo balance the chaos of their creativity with their need for love? Playwright Tommy Smith and director Chris Fields trace three real-life love triangles in a passionate tale of intrigue, jealousy and music.
Set simultaneously in 20th century Austria, 18th century Russia and 17th century Italy, Fugue interlaces the three tales of ill-fated romance in counterpoint, a polyphonic telling that reveals each composer’s breathtaking genius — as well as the demons that drive his creativity.
