This unmissable performance will reconstruct the historic Beethoven Benefit Concert given in Vienna in December 1808. Over the course of four hours on a freezing night at the Theatre an der Wien all but his dramatic aria ‘Ah Perfido’ received first performances. This wonderful retrospective brings a wealth of international talent to present some of Beethoven’s most iconic music, including the most famous symphonic opening ever written. This Beethoven spectacular will be an event to remember.
