For many men, she was a femme fatale. She loved them, but her heart belonged to music above all else. Can a man choose his destiny or can he just succumb to it? And how does the history we are part of affect us? The life and love story of Czech composer and conductor Vítězslava Kapralová, whose journey ended too soon.

The musical-dramatic collage will feature a selection of works by Vitka Kapralová and her most famous lover and admirer, Bohuslav Martinů (including excerpts from the opera Juliette), as well as quotations from authentic correspondence.
