HERSHEY FELDER: BEETHOVEN
A Play With Music


Music of Ludwig van Beethoven
Text by Hershey Felder
Based on the Stage Play Directed by Joel Zwick

  

SUNDAY JULY 12, 2020
5 pm PDT, 7 pm CDT, 8 pm EDT


Dramatizing Dr. Gerhard von Breuning's factual memoir, Aus dem Schwarzspanierhaus, (Out of the House of Black-Robed Spaniards, Beethoven’s last residence), Hershey Felder brings Ludwig van Beethoven to life through the eyes of the Viennese Doctor Breuning who spent his boyhood by the Maestro's side.

Featuring some of the composer's greatest works, from the Moonlight Sonata and Pathétique Sonata to selections from the 5th and 9th Symphonies, and the Emperor Concerto, Hershey Felder's Beethoven is an intense, illuminating, unforgettable journey through time that immerses audiences in the astounding life of Ludwig van Beethoven.

As with Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin, this production will benefit national U.S. theatres and arts organizations. Felder will also donate a portion of the proceeds to the Penumbra Theatre Company in St. Paul, MN., to support the work of Black theatre artists.

50% of the proceeds from each ticket purchased through TheatreWorks goes directly to the theatre!
