This 2 DVD set is a unique and intimate live performance by a chamber ensemble of actors, singers, and instrumentalists, portraying the deep and ultimately tragic love between the composer Robert Schumann (Sting/Simon Keelyside) and his pianist wife Clara Wieck (Trudie Styles/Rebecca Evans). In this intensely moving performance of words, song, and instrumental music, the Schumanns' long separation, so formative an influence on their lives, is reflected in the division of the ensemble into male and female groups. Derek Jacobi narrates. Conceived and directed by John Caird, this set captures the performance at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.
