“A lovely entertainment, flawlessly performed” ***** THE INDEPENDENT

Beloved Clara

Devised and scripted by Lucy Parham, Beloved Clara chronicles the intense relationships between Robert Schumann, his wife Clara and Johannes Brahms. It tells of the sometimes troubled marriage of Clara and Robert, the arrival into their household of the dynamic, 21 year old Brahms, Robert’s decline into mental illness and the deepening relationship between Clara and Brahms.

Music by all three is interspersed with extracts from their letters and diaries.

This acclaimed production has played to full houses throughout the UK, Europe and North America and has been widely featured on BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio 4 and Classic FM.

With Gabrielle Drake, Henry Goodman and Lucy Parham
