A Warsaw Melody

by Leonid Zorin Translation Franklin D. Reeve

Belka Productions is proud to present the UK premiere of this landmark Russian love story, by one of the greatest twentieth-century playwrights.

Love starts to blossom in the hostile terrain of the Soviet bloc when chance brings young Victor to beautiful Polish singer Helya at a concert hall in Moscow. But in Stalin’s brutally controlled empire their love simply cannot be, and over the span of two decades of missed opportunitites and thwarted beginnings, from Moscow to Warsaw and back again, their passionate desire matures into an altogether different and more moving kind of love.

Already a worldwide sensation having been performed all over Europe, Canada and the United Stated, Leonid Zorin’s timeless story of the fragility and resillience of love in a loveless land finally makes its way to the UK.
