Orchestra Miami continues its “Beethoven on the Beach” free outdoor concert series with “Beethoven on the Beach: Reboot”. This year’s concert will feature a dramatic work based on Goethe’s famous play entitled Egmont. Goethe was extremely aware of the musical potential of his dramas, and indicated in the script where incidental music or arias should be inserted. Several composers took on the job of composing incidental music to Egmont, but it’s Beethoven’s incidental music, Op. 84 which endures. Orchestra Miami will perform the complete incidental music, with narration in an English translation by Gordon Kalton Williams, and featuring soprano soloist Robyn Marie Lamp.
This is a free concert, with a $10 per person suggested free will donation- no one turned away! Comfortable theater seats are provided- please do not bring a lawn chair. No outside food or beverages permitted; food and beverage will be available for purchase at the venue.
