Protean genius and primary architect of the Doctrine of Separation of Church and State, Jefferson was also an accomplished violinist and four-year resident of Paris before he became our third President.
His romance with the married, Italian-born painter/composer/ musician Maria Cosway during his post as Minister Plenipotentiary to France leaves a trove of letters which render the soundscape of the French Revolution with startling precision.
Matthew Modine and Melissa Errico star in a dramatic presentation drawn from the Jefferson/Cosway letters, intertwined with the performance of music mentioned in their correspondence, including works by Sacchini, Hewitt, and compositions by Cosway herself.
