Beloved Clara is the compelling and tragic story of the passionate, yet volatile relationship between Robert Schumann, his pianist wife Clara Wieck.
Part of the Belfast International Arts Festival
Lucy Parham’s original Composer Portrait amalgamates poignant letters and diaries interspersed with solo piano works by all three composers, as well as those by Mendelssohn and Liszt. Beloved Clara chronicles the sometimes-troubled marriage of Clara and Robert, the arrival in their household of the dynamic, 21-year-old Brahms, Robert’s decline into mental illness and the deepening relationship between Clara and Brahms, the exact nature of which has never been established.
Pianist Lucy Parham, who is internationally known for her Composer Portraits, is joined by acclaimed actors Juliet Stevenson (Riviera, Truly Madly Deeply, The Politician’s Wife, Atlantis, The Village) and Tim McInnerny (Blackadder, Notting Hill, Game of Thrones, National Treasure).
