    • Synopsis
    • Teresita & the Piano is a feature documentary project which unveils the life of Teresa Carreño,
      a Venezuelan Pianist, Composer, Singer and Conductor. Born in Caracas in 1853, Teresa was
      brought up in a musical family. A child prodigy, her talent was recognized from an early age. She
      moved to Europe in 1866 where she began touring in stages in Berlin, Vienna, London, Paris and
      many more, playing and singing Opera under the baton of Directors such as Arthur Nikish, Hans von
      Bülow, Carl Zerrahn and Theodor Thomas. She also belonged to some of the greatest Philharmonics
      at the time such as Berlin, New York and Boston.
      Through the use of multiple media platforms, we bring homage to the Latin American woman
      through the exploration of her fascinating life in the turn of the 20th century around the world
      and rescuing her contributions to music, art and contemporary history with her brilliant work and
      legacy.
