David Gill

A message from our Honoree

Two of the most brilliant and influential Germans in history will set the tone when for the first time since February Orpheus will be back on stage: a breathtaking rendition of Ludwig von Beethoven’s dramatic masterwork, Incidental Music from Egmont, Op. 84 accompanied by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s Egmont in the words of an incisive new translation by award-winning translator Philip Boehm.

Featuring soprano Karen Slack and narrator Liev Schreiber this incredible composition of music and lyrics will be a truly exciting world premiere, not to be missed. Please join me for an unforgettable evening.

David Gill, Consul General of Germany
