Beethoven | Egmont | Livestream Oct. 17-22, 2020
Orpheus stands up for justice and freedom in this homage to courageous voices. Beethoven, an unyielding critic of despots, channeled his ardor and rage into music for Goethe’s historical drama about a local hero defying foreign occupiers. Liev Schreiber narrates an incisive new translation by Philip Boehm, while the clarion voice of Karen Slack and Orpheus illuminate the eternal truths of Egmont.
This study guide for teachers, students, and families includes a synopsis of the story, the composition and production history of Egmont, artist bios, language arts activities, and a listening guide for the program.
