I Shall Hear in Heaven
A dramatic portrait of a child prodigy oppressed by his drunken father, to his emergence as the greatest musician of his day: Beethoven – a titan of will and imagination, a man who refused to be crushed by the buffeting of fortune, who overcame the worst obstacles that fate could put in his way.
Actor Tama Matheson breathes life into the tortured composer, presenting a man of deeply human qualities, who wore heavily the burden of his own genius and who, despite the frangible condition of his own mortality, pushed the world of music to a blazing new level. This powerful depiction will be interspersed with Beethoven’s incredible music, performed by the London Mozart Players, the KPFestival Choir and the KPFestival Youth Orchestra.
Director, actor and writer Tama Matheson is Artistic Director of The Brisbane Shakespeare Festival and has worked as a freelance director in both theatre and opera around the world. He is an award-winning stage actor and has played a variety of TV roles, including EastEnders and Heartbeat. Tama has written several plays and one man shows including a series of collaborative plays about the lives of great composers.
