Beethoven Lives Upstairs!
Part of the Nicklaus Children’s Pinecrest Urgent Care Center
Family Fun Concert Series!!
Performed by Orchestra Miami
Presented as a part of Orchestra Miami's "Beethoven for Miami" Festival!
Teach your kids about the life and works of Ludwig van Beethoven in this world-famous production! A “madman” has moved into the upstairs apartment of Christoph, a young boy who lives in Vienna. Through a series of letters to his Uncle, dramatically underscored with Beethoven’s most beautiful excerpts, Christoph slowly comes to understand the genius of the man, the torment of his deafness and the beauty of his music.
Audiences are captivated by more than 25 excerpts of the master’s music, including the Moonlight Sonata, Fur Elise, and the great Fifth and Ninth Symphonies. The music is magically woven into the drama as two actors share their anecdotes and observations based on true incidents from the composer’s life. Presenting history, drama, music and fun, this engaging concert is an ideal way to introduce your kids to the music of Beethoven!
The performance is approximately 50 minutes in length and is recommended for audiences ages six and up.
