Stephen Sondheim's multi-award-winning musical Passion tells a haunting story of desire, sacrifice and redemption. Starring Elena Roger. Read More >

In Stephen Sondheim’s musical Passion, Captain Giorgio Bachetti, a military hero, is transferred to a strange and remote Italian outpost. Far away from his beloved Clara, he encounters Fosca, the cousin of his commanding officer, and her influence has shattering and inconceivable consequences.

A multi-award-winning musical, Passion examines the power of love in a haunting story of desire, sacrifice and redemption.

Argentinian actress Elena Roger, who previously led the cast of Piaf at the Donmar Warehouse, returns to the intimate venue to play Fosca in Passion. In addition to her work at the Donmar, Roger has also starred in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita and hit comedy Boeing Boeing in the West End. Passion sees her reunited with her Piaf director, Jamie Lloyd.

Passion plays at the Donmar Warehouse as part of Sondheim at 80, a celebration of the composer’s 80th birthday that also includes talks and concert performances of Company and Merrily We Roll Along.
