Event Details

How did classical music become a thriving art form in communist China? After being targeted for elimination in the communist revolution, an unlikely visit by the Philadelphia Orchestra in 1973 touched hearts and rekindled a love for the music despite decades of silence. A rich mix of forgotten history, engaging stories and stirring performances, Beethoven in Beijing offers a striking then-and-now look at the cross-cultural power of music.
