MUSIC OF LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN
TEXT BY HERSHEY FELDER
BASED ON THE STAGE PLAY DRECTED BY JOEL ZWICK
A One-Time-Only Live-streamed Theatrical Event in Support of 59E59 Theaters
A portion of the cost of each ticket will be donated to 59E59 Theaters.
Dramatizing Dr. Gerhard von Breuning's factual memoir, Aus dem Schwarzspanierhaus, (Beethoven's last residence), Hershey Felder brings Ludwig van Beethoven to life through the eyes of the Viennese Doctor who spent his boyhood by the Maestro's side.
From Moonlight Sonata and Pathétique Sonata to selections from the 5th and 9th Symphonies, and the Emperor Concerto, Hershey Felder's BEETHOVEN features some of the composer's greatest works in an intense, illuminating and unforgettable journey through time comes to our screens live from Florence, Italy for one night only.
Described by American Theatre Magazine as “a seductive portraitist, compelling storyteller, and superb concert pianist", Hershey Felder is enthralling as both Beethoven and Dr. Gerhard von Breuning, the young boy who cared for him in the last years of his life, in a performance that can satisfy musical experts, as well as captivate audience members with little background in classical music.
Viewing is available on computer, smartphone, or tablet.
