THE MISSING PAGES

2021-03-15T06:57:37-04:00

 Written by Tom Allen

ONLINE – November 13th at 7PM to November 15th at 7AM

About This Event

On December 16, 1825 Theodor Molt became the sole Canadian to meet Ludwig van Beethoven, but what could have happened between the two men? After Molt’s florid greeting in one of Beethoven’s notebooks, the following four pages were violently ripped out and destroyed. Betrayal? Competition? Scandal? Or just old fashioned ego and pride? With music, song, drama, history and informed speculation, The Missing Pages investigates.

Covid-19 has put great restrictions on the theatre world, making it not possible for us to bring to you live performances in person. Therefore, Theatre Collingwood is venturing into the world of streamed performances and invites you to attend from the safety and comfort of your own home!

Please join us for this brilliant production from CBC radio host Tom Allen.
