A musical based on a 19th-century Italian novel Passion tells of the consequences of a sickly woman's love for a handsome young army captain. From the award-winning writing partnership behind Sunday in the Park with George and Into the Woods. Giorgio is a lusty officer in the Italian army transferred to a remote outpost under the watchful eye of Colonel Ricci. Ricci's ward Fosca is a sickly and unattractive girl who falls heavily in love with Giorgio at first sight. This is a love so compelling that she gradually wins the young officer over - but at what cost?
