Love Song – “The Death of Eduard Zak” scene

LOVE SONG: THE TRIUMPH AND TRAGEDY OF TCHAIKOVSKY is based on ground-breaking research by Tchaikovsky aficionado Ian Woodward. The docudrama reveals for the first time the heart-breaking true story behind the creation of the Russian composer’s fantasy overture “Romeo and Juliet” which gave the world one of the most famous love themes ever written. The artistic and historical revelation the film makes has never previously been disclosed on the printed page, on the theatre stage, or on the small or big screens. The filmmaker’s detective work into Tchaikovsky’s fantasy “Romeo and Juliet” meant that for many years he held a secret bombshell: that the world’s most famous Love Theme is NOT about a boy and girl in love…not even about a girl. The film has rocked the classical-music Establishment.
