Beethoven on the Cape


  • Barnstable Performing Art Center 744 West Main St. Hyannis, Ma. (map)

Show Times

September 21 @ 7:30 PM

September 22 @ 3:00 PM

We celebrate the Cape’s natural beauty – plus Beethoven’s own ode to nature! Beethoven’s “Pastoral” Symphony, filled with babbling brooks, bird calls, and storms, will be the highlight.

With the Harwich Conservation Trust, we’re creating a multimedia experience with an aerial view of our beautiful Cape landscapes accompanied by an evocative new soundtrack inspired by the amazing environment that surrounds us. Tan Dun’s “Secret of Wind and Birds” uses bird songs and Stella Sung’s “Oceana” features ship horns and the calls of humpback whales to create the experience of nature.
