Teresa Malfatti, Ludwig van Beethoven’s platonic love, asks the Viennese genius to compose a piano piece dedicated to a young prodigy who has just arrived in the city: Elisabet Barensfeld, who she affectionately calls “Elisa”.
Teresa Malfatti confesses to Beethoven that composition of the piece is an excuse for him to also give young Elisa piano lessons, as she is losing her musical vocation.
Beethoven becomes obsessed with pleasing Teresa, using every strategy at his disposal to prevent Elisa from abandoning music.
Ludwig discovers that Elisa has another passion aside from music, and the young girl shows Beethoven that there is life beyond genius, talent and music.
Beethoven#ParaElisa [Beethoven#ForElisa] is a life-affirming show and musical for the whole family that explores the theme of education’s limits when the line between education and imposition becomes blurred.
