SUNDAY JULY 12, 2020
8 p.m. EDT

Following the success of Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin: Live from Florence, a live streaming event in May from Felder’s residence in Florence, Italy, which raised significant funds for theatres and arts organizations, actor, playwright, and pianist Hershey Felder is producing a second high quality streaming arts program for international audiences, to support theatres that remain closed during the Covid-19 pandemic, and beyond. The Segal Centre for Performing Arts is honoured to be the only Canadian theatre included in this endeavor. Segal Centre audiences adored Felder’s moving production of The Pianist of Willesden Lane in the fall of 2019. This is a fabulous opportunity to enjoy a beautiful show and support the Segal Centre.

Beethoven – A Play with Music 

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

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.
