Background


AMOUR, a musical fantasy about daring to dream and the power of self belief, has music by multi award-winning Michel Legrand with English lyrics by Jeremy Sams (from the original French by Didier Van Cauwelaert).


Adapted from the 1943 short story Le Passe-Muraille by Marcel Aymé, AMOUR opened on Broadway in 2002 and was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical.


Presented by arrangement with TAMS-WITMARK.


Synopsis


Paris, 1950 - a shy, unassuming civil servant, Dusoleil, lives alone and works diligently in a dreary office.


To pass the time, he writes letters to his mother and daydreams about the beautiful Isabelle, who is kept locked away by her controlling husband.


When Dusoleil miraculously gains the ability to walk through walls, he not only begins to lead a double life, stealing from the rich and giving to the poor to right the wrongs of his war-impoverished Parisian neighbours, but also gains the self-confidence to woo Isabelle and, just for a while, live the life he has always longed for.
