--Ludwig van Beethoven
Beginning with a stormy opening gesture--perhaps the most famous four notes in all of classical music--Beethoven's Fifth is the most iconic of all symphonies, a storied journey from darkness to a jubilant, life-affirming finale. With possible influences ranging from the glorious dreams of the French Revolution to the effortless elegance of a songbird's call, Beethoven's legendary work is an endless source of inspiration and intrigue the world over--and remains one of music's most breathtaking marvels of human creation.
Journey into the heart of this work with Beyond the Score. With live actors, visual illustrations, and musical examples, this multimedia experience reveals the illuminating stories found "inside" the score. After intermission, concertgoers return with newly discovered knowledge to hear a performance of the work played in its entirety.
Performance Timing: Part One - 60 min.; Intermission - 15 min.; Part Two - 35 min.
NOTE: There is NO late seating until intermission.
