Synopsis: Violin virtuoso and notorious womanizer Niccolò Paganini is at the peak of his career, acclaimed throughout Europe.

Only the London public has yet to be conquered. In a plan to lure Paganini to London for his British debut, English impresario John Watson and his mistress Elisabeth Wells risk all they own.
