Synopsis

Vienna, 1803. At the opening of our story there exists two separate worlds in 19th century Europe - the world of freed slaves who settle across Europe, and the world of the landed gentry - each containing a small group of characters upon whom we focus our audiences' interest.

These two worlds come into contact with each other through the person of the violinist, George Augustus Polgreen Bridgetower. Our drama consists in the collision of these two worlds as represented by the composer, Ludwig van Beethoven and Bridgetower. This is the story of their brief friendship.
