Io senza te

Blick auf die Bühne bei schöner Abendstimmung

A story that could only come from real life. A spontaneously formed trio performs at the 20th anniversary celebrations of a couple whose marriage is in crisis in an attempt to revive it. They perform the now defunct group Peter, Sue and Marc’s hit “IO SENZA TE”. The song had once been a favourite of the anniversary couple and hearing it again revives the wife’s long-forgotten dreams. Their performance also has unexpected consequences for the trio itself. One of the guests at the party is a music producer who wants to make the trio famous as a band. The trio’s members are faced with a difficult decision: is it possible to combine self-realisation and commercial success? Find out how the story ends at the Thunerseespiele in summer 2022.
