BEETHOVEN’S TENTH Central Production 2021 | Preceded by TOTAL ENSEMBLE THEATRE COMPANY Egmont: a Valiant Stand

THEATRE

To mark the 250th anniversary of
Ludwig van Beethoven’s birth,
The Hostry Festival proudly
presents the Norfolk Premiere of
BEETHOVEN’S TENTH, a play that
brings to life the very spirit of one
of the world’s most celebrated
composers, delivered straight into
the year 2021. In Sir Peter Ustinov’s masterpiece,
we witness the arrival of Beethoven,
in person, and see the effect on a
family whose entire world is turned
upside down for a few extraordinary
days. Nothing and no one will ever
be quite the same again, thank
goodness! A beautifully written
mischievous comedy drama about
family, the discovery of love, loss,
immortality and ultimate humanity.

Preceded by TOTAL ENSEMBLE THEATRE COMPANY: EGMONT: A VALIANT STAND AN ‘OVERTURE IN ACTION’ Devised and Directed by REBECCA CHAPMAN

Beethoven was a fan of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and wrote the music for Goethe’s play Egmont.
Beethoven was coming out of a long
period of isolation when he worked on
the music for Goethe’s play about activism, ultimate sacrifice and the fight for freedom. Somewhat topical!
Total Ensemble’s piece is inspired by contemporary themes, the musical structure of Beethoven’s composition and the characters and story of Goethe’s play. Created over an extensive programme of theatre workshops and rehearsals that celebrated and encouraged the ability of every individual.
A magical blend of media and art form, original soundscape, music, song, poetry, dance and physical theatre. Strains of the dramatic and emotive Egmont Overture could be heard in the underwater world of the sea god in Total Ensemble’s 2018 production ‘Boy in the Lighthouse’ and we are very excited to be exploring this amazing piece of music in an entirely different way in 2021.

Press gala night: Wednesday 27th October

End Time: 10:15 pm (approx)
