The intense and complex relationship between Robert Schumann, his wife Clara Schumann and Johannes Brahms; three of the nineteenth centurys most prolific musicians, has fascinated generations of music lovers. Delicately bringing their captivating story to life, this showcase memorialises the sometimes turbulent marriage of Robert and Clara, the arrival of 21 year old Johannes Brahms into their household, Roberts decline into mental illness and the deepening relationship between Clara and Brahms. Born Clara Wieck, Clara Schumann was an extraordinary woman, the first female concert pianist and heralded as the next Mozart. She was also an extraordinarily talented composer and muse to two giants of the Romantic school. In Beloved Clara, her much revered story is told through both music and readings, with each piece of music reflecting the moods of the readings.
