Beethoven Lives Upstairs
Sunday, April 10, 2022
The world-famous production of Beethoven Lives Upstairs features a lively exchange of letters between young Christoph and his uncle. Their subject: the “madman” who has moved into the upstairs apartment of Christoph’s home in Vienna. Through a touching correspondence, dramatically underscored with the composer’s most beautiful excerpts, Christoph slowly comes to understand the genius of Beethoven and the beauty of his music.
You will be captivated by more than twenty-five excerpts of Beethoven’s music, including the Moonlight Sonata, Für Elise, and the great Fifth and Ninth Symphonies. The music is magically woven into the drama as two actors share anecdotes and observations based on true incidents from the composer’s life. Presenting history, drama, music, and fun, this engaging concert is an ideal experience for families of all ages.
This concert, featuring Classical Kids LIVE!, will take place at our home venue (the MSU Riley Center) and will begin at 3PM. We invite you to join us after for Family FunFest at The MAX!
Meridian sounds theatrical!
