Schumann se romantiese, avontuurlike verhaal, gekenmerk deur passie, liefde en tragedie, word begelei met die universele taal van musiek.

Liefde is soms morsig, meestal misterieus, en maak mense dikwels mallerig. Hierdie produksie bring Antjie Krog se bloemlesing waarin verskeie digters aan die woord is, na die verhoog. Dit reik oor grense van temas, kultuurgroepe en generasies heen, maar op die ou end word almal ewe hard omgedolwe, platgetrek óf opgehef.

In 1952 het Doris Day en Frankie Laine ’n internasionale treffer met die liedjie “Sugarbush” gehad, na bewering geskryf deur Josef Marais. In die 1950’s is Josef en sy vrou Rosa op die kruin van sukses in Amerika as ’n volksangduo – bekend vir hul Afrikaanse liedjies wat Josef in Engels vertaal. Hulle werk saam met Burt Lancaster en Humphrey Bogart in Hollywood. Maar terug in die Boland vier Kittie Jaftha nie hul sukses nie. Sy voel verraai, want sy wéét Josef het dié liedjies by haar en Koos Heuningbek wat op sy pa se plaas werk, geleer.

In 1952 Doris Day and Frankie Laine had an international hit with the song “Sugarbush”, reportedly written by Josef Marais. In the 1950s, Josef and his wife Rosa were famous in America as a folk song duo – known for their Afrikaans songs Josef had translated into English. They even worked together with Burt Lancaster and Humphrey Bogart in Hollywood. Meanwhile, back in the Boland, Kittie Jaftha didn’t revel in their success. She felt betrayed, because she knew that Josef had learnt these songs from her and Koos Heuningbek who was a labourer on the farm where Josef grew up.
