Ludwig van Beethoven Excerpts from Symphonies 1 – 9  


The MPO performs in Beethoven Forever, a production combining full orchestra, digital animation and theatre on the stage of Teatru for an entertaining journey through all of Beethoven’s 9 symphonies.  

This family-friendly event presents a series of symphonic excerpts, accompanied by animations and illustrations that portray the narrative of each sequence. From the 4-note theme of “fate” knocking at the door of the 5th to the bird calls and thunder strikes of the 6th; from the innovative horn trio of the 3rd to the intriguing timpani part of the 4th; from the clockwork parody of the 8th to the grand choral of the 9th.  

LOCATION: Teatru Manoel, Valletta
