BLUEBARN Theatre, 614 S. 11th Street, Omaha 68102
33 Variations, a play by Moisés Kaufman, asks the question, “Why did Beethoven write so many variations and devote so much time and energy to Diabelli’s insignificant theme?”
In partnership with the Omaha Chamber Music Society, the BLUEBARN Theatre presents Beethoven Variations and Transformations as a precursor to 33 Variations opening May 8th and the OCMS season. Join host, Hal France and OCMS musicians: Anne Nagosky and Juliet Yoshida on violin, Thomas Kluge on viola and Paul Ledwon on cello; for this noon time informance featuring the music of Ludwig van Beethoven. The group will share insights into the composer’s techniques of variation and musical transformation. Bring your own lunch and prepare to be transported and inspired by Beethoven’s 33 Variations.
