Tatatataaaaaaa! Did you know that Beethoven never married? That he not only composed masterpieces, but was also interested in philosophy, poetry and politics? That he always carried a handful of sand from the banks of the Rhine in his trouser pocket?

Szene aus Beethoven - Ein Leben
Szene aus Beethoven - Ein Leben Jörg Metzner

The Atze Musiktheater's production 'Beethoven - A Life' is far more than a best-of album of his best-known works. Together with chamber orchestra, band and choir, we find out at Beethoven's side what life was like for this exceptional artist. Get to know who he knew. Listen into his head. Beethoven's original scores form the biographical thread. They are the musical carpet that is increasingly cut by electric guitar and synthesiser sounds as Beethoven's hearing loss progresses. "When the music fades away, my life fades away too." - Just one of Beethoven's countless oft-quoted statements. Biographically interwoven into the scenic action, his words provide even more powerful evidence of the genius's fate.
