Excerpts of the master’s music is magically woven into the drama of his life.

The world famous production of Beethoven Lives Upstairs features a lively exchange of letters between young Christoph and his uncle. Their subject is the “madman” who has moved into the upstairs apartment of Christoph’s Vienna home. Through a touching correspondence dramatically underscored with the composer’s most beautiful excerpts, the young boy slowly comes to understand the genius of the man, the torment of his deafness and the beauty of his music. Excerpts of the master’s music is magically woven into the drama as two actors share their anecdotes and observations based on true incidents from the composer’s life.
