Set in 1846, Liszt's Rhapsody celebrates the inextinguishable flame of genuine talent, seen here in the guise of a free-spirited Gypsy boy who inspires a frustrated composer to reach his own true potential. Franz Liszt (Geordie Johnson) is the 19th century equivalent of a rock star handsome, rich and famous beyond his dreams. But the Hungarian-born Liszt wants to be more than simply Europe's most celebrated pianist; he wants to compose great music not just play it. Josy (Drew Jurecka) is a young virtuoso who is perfectly happy playing his violin in the streets. Liszt only needs to hear Josy play once to know that the Gypsy boy could achieve true greatness with a bit of formal training so he arranges for Josy to come live with him and take lessons. Little does Liszt know that his own creativity will be transformed by the experience. Featuring music from The Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2, Carnival in Pest and The Mephisto Waltz.
