A new opera themed psychodrama (aka Black Swan), Pique Dame is directed by Peter Lungin was co-scripted with David Seidler, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of The King’s Speech.
Set in contemporary Moscow Pique Dame is centred around the casting for an opera lead by the great soprano Sofia Mayer. Sofia once conquered the world with her voice, her beauty and the legend she carefully built around herself. Now only the legend remains — the diva herself hasn’t performed for years.
But the woman who fascinated and thrilled the world for so long wants to crown her career with one more triumph. And in Pique Dame she’ll use every dirty trick she knows to achieve it.
