The Music Lovers (1970)
Antonina Milyukova: He's never loved another woman, has he, mother? No one else. But I, but I have so *many* lovers, so many lovers, so many, so many! See how many lovers, mother! See how many, how many, how many . . .
Modeste Tchaikovsky: I've got a title for your symphony: "The Pathetic". If it really is all about you. It's so much more fitting than "The Tragic". Just "Symphony #6 in B minor: The Pathetic".
Madame Nadedja von Meck: [concerning Antonina] She'll ruin you! She'll ruin you . . .
Peter Tchaikovsky: There's nothing left in me!
Antonina Milyukova: How cruel. How can you say that? Don't I live? Everyone thinks they can do as they like with me! Even you!
[in insane asylum]
Antonina Milyukova: My husband's a most famous man. I'm Madame Tchaikovsky from Moscow. My husband, he really did love me! Oh, Peter, my love...
[pauses, expression changes]
Antonina Milyukova: He hated me. He hated me!
