Immerse yourself in a tale of destiny.
It’s 1930s Paris where romance, decadence and glamour await at every turn.

Magda, mistress of a wealthy banker, risks it all as she embarks on a journey of true love with the passionate Ruggero. Meanwhile, her maid seeks happiness with a charming poet. Will love win out in this elegant rom com?

James Hurley’s new upstairs, downstairs production captures the warmth of a musical, as Puccini’s sweeping music, including ‘Chi il bel sogno di Doretta‘, weaves a captivating soundtrack. Prepare to be swept off your feet in this whirlwind of passion and scandal.
