In his new choreography, ballet director Robert North proves that Ludwig van Beethoven is immortal. He brings the composer, whose 250th birthday we celebrated in 2020, to life with an original and imaginative staging: a dancer, a pianist and an actor together bring Beethoven's genius to the fore

But how can we empathise with his destiny, share his passion? Do we understand how he manages to capture the shocks, upheavals and contradictions of his time in tones, and to transform them into musical structures, into moving, sad, stirring, powerful and combative sounds?

The creative artist, the witty person with great thoughts on current affairs and depressing life experiences, the fragile idealist who clings to the utopia of a better world - Robert North illuminates all these aspects through concise life situations, integrated into the exciting chapter of European contemporary history from the French Revolution to the Congress of Vienna, reflected in the person of Napoleon Bonaparte.

Beethoven is celebrated as a star by Viennese society. But his success goes hand in hand with loss of hearing, unfulfilled love and crushed political hopes. In this field of tension, Robert North explores Beethoven's inner state, his emotional moods. Passages from letters and documents also provide deep insights into his world of feelings and thoughts.

Beethoven's legacy has not lost any of its topicality. Convinced of the European idea, he steadfastly stuck to his credo (even against the passage of time): peace, freedom and humanity. Especially in these times, millions of people are becoming aware again of what it can cost to hold on to this.

With: Alessandro Borghesani, André Parfenov and Michael Grosse as "Beethoven

Dass Ludwig van Beethoven unsterblich ist, beweist Ballettdirektor Robert North in seiner neuen Choreografie. He shows the composer, whose 250th birthday we celebrated in 2020, through an original artistic gesture: a dancer, a pianist and a performer representing Beethoven.

But how can we find his Schicksal and share his leadership? Do we understand how he succeeded in transposing the Erschütterungen, Verwerfungen und Widersprüche of his time into sounds, and in transforming them into musical structures, into stirring, plaintive, exhilarating, kraftvolle und kämpferische Klänge?

Der schöpferische Künstler, der geistreiche Mensch mit großen Gedanken zum Zeitgeschehen und bedrückenden Lebenserfahrungen, der verletzliche, an der Utopie einer besseren Welt festhaltende Idealist - all diese Aspekte beleuchtet Robert North anhand prägnanter Lebenssituationen, eingebunden in das aufregende Kapitel europäischer Zeitgeschichte von der Französischen Revolution bis zum Wiener Kongress, das sich exemplarisch in der Person Napoleon Bonapartes widerspiegelt.

Beethoven wird von der Wiener Gesellschaft als Star gefeiert. Doch sein Erfolg geht einher mit Gehörverlust, unerfüllter Liebe, enttäuschten politischen Hoffnungen. In diesem Spannungsfeld lotet Robert North Beethovens innere Befindlichkeit, seine emotionalen Stimmungen aus. Auch Textpassagen aus Briefen und Dokumenten geben tiefe Einblicke in seine Gefühls- und Gedankenwelt.

Beethoven's Vermächtnis is still not erfüllt. Überzeugt von der europäischen Idee hält er unerschütterlich an seinem Credo fest, auch gegen den Lauf der Zeit: Frieden, Freiheit und Menschenliebe. His message is universal: be gone, millions of people!

Mit: Alessandro Borghesani, André Parfenov und Michael Grosse as "Beethoven"

The Maas is an inspiration, a lover that flows through the heart of Venlo. Just as the Maaspoort is also the beating heart of the city. The Maas is lively, beautiful, energetic and on the move. The gate stands for the explorer. The guide. This one is always open to something new. Something challenging with a hint of rebel. This one leads you to new inspiration, (dis)excitement and enjoyment.
