LOVE SONG is based on exclusive ground-breaking research by filmmaker Ian Woodward. The docudrama reveals for the first time the heart-breaking true story behind the creation of Tchaikovsky’s fantasy overture “Romeo and Juliet” which gave the world one of the most famous love themes ever written. The facts are presented in biopic docudrama form. All the characters depicted in the film actually existed, although some moments have been fictionalised to fill-in gaps where details are scant or non-existent. The result is LOVE SONG: THE TRIUMPH AND TRAGEDY OF TCHAIKOVSKY. A cinematic first that has rocked the classical-music Establishment.
