Chopin’s Love Life is the ideal play for those who enjoy both theatre and classical music. It is based on Frederic Chopin’s correspondence with family, friends and the women he loved. Chopin’s Love Life tells the story of Chopin’s love affairs and the emotional conflicts he faced at various stages of his life. it tells us that Chopin was much more than just a piano genius, he also wielded his pen to masterfully craft prose about his life and times. His letters provide a rich source of information about his artistic sensibilities and his most enduring and meaningful relationships. Chopin’s writings reveal a refined sense of humour, a light-hearted profoundness, and cutting self-depreciation.
The theme and content of the play are inspired by Chopin’s correspondence with his mother Justyna Krzyżanowska, as well as Konstancja Gładkowska (Chopin’s first love), Maria and Teresa Wodzińska (Chopin’s first fiancé and her mother), Tytus Wojciechowski (one of Chopin’s oldest friends), Wojciech Grzymała (a close friend) and, of course, George Sand (Chopin’s greatest love).
