About

Among Goethe’s dramas, Egmont stands practically unrivalled in its vibrant portrayal of protagonists faced with emotional anxieties and conflicts.

For the convincing presentation of these states of heart and mind on the stage, the Prince of German Poets prescribed music for the key scenes as early as the work’s premiere. Now the Beethoven Orchestra of Bonn under its new principal conductor Dirk Kaftan has set itself the task of performing Beethoven’s incidental music.

The magnificent Matthias Brandt collaborated with the dramatist Tilman Böttcher on this new version of the drama and renders his part with moving intensity.
