Event Description

Originally conceived as a ballet work, Ludwig van Beethoven’s The Creatures of Prometheus tells the story of two clay statues made human by a cunning Prometheus. In this imaginative multimedia performance led by Esa-Pekka Salonen, Hillary Leben’s original animated projections combine with Beethoven’s talent for colorful and dramatic storytelling to bring to life the enchanting story of Prometheus’ antics in the world of the mighty and capricious Greek gods.
