Hershey Felder brought Old Globe audiences to their feet last season with his portrayal of American master George Gershwin. His limited engagement as Monsieur Chopin was an instant sell-out. Now, because of the overwhelming reception he was given by San Diego audiences during his last visit, he is premiering his next tour-de-force on The Old Globe stage. With his one-of-a-kind style and virtuoso talent as a pianist and actor, Hershey Felder will bring to life one of the greatest composers of all time, the immortal Ludwig van Beethoven. Youíll never be closer to the music or to the genius who gave us these masterpieces than you will be at this must-see theatrical event!
