The (van) Beethoven Game is a tale

Started with Mozart and continued with Rossini, the Game sets meets one of the greatest musicians of all time this year: Ludwig van Beethoven. Complicated character, immense musician, marked by real pains and particular obsessions which he had throughout his life; first of all his birth date which remained uncertain for himself and which became a constant thought for the musician. "My baptism certificate is incorrect!", he yelled at friends and aspiring biographers. And then we will see on the scene: anecdotes of Beethoven's life, Beethoven's private relationships, memories written by Beethoven himself, memories of friends and musicians about Beethoven. But above all we will listen to the music and poetry of the voices of the great Master. Moreover, 2020 will be the year of Beethoven: 250 years from his birth.

New staging by Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino in coproduction with Venti Lucenti.
