BEETHOVEN'S LOST WORK
A circus story
A lot is known about the life of the great and brilliant composer Ludwig van Beethoven, but by no means everything.
A secret correspondence between Beethoven and the poet prince Goethe on the occasion of a new opera would surely have remained undiscovered forever had GOP director Markus Pabst not found it by chance in the dusty attic of an old building in Bonn. A sensation! The opera tells the story of a rich but sad prince who loves a courageous but very poor circus artist and through her learns what makes life really meaningful. The sensational subject, of course, was taken on by the vaudeville director king Markus Pabst immediately after it was found and began to develop a glamorous production in his honor. Is that true? Let's leave it aside. Because in the world of shows and the very best entertainment, music and artistry, anything is possible at any time. And only the artful mixing of reality and fiction opens new doors, enables refreshing ways of thinking and, above all, makes one thing: fun! First-class songs, artistry of the highest level and a great story - the "Lost Work" delivers all of this!
