Mike Roberts director
A 1970s television icon, this surreal, mischievous and Beethoven-playing ovoid makes a Barbican/Guildhall debut with live musical accompaniment as part of the Barbican Beethoven Weekender.
Forty-three years after the magical egg-shaped being first graced our television screens, we are delighted to present all 25 episodes of this classic children’s animation, with revised soundtracks arranged and composed by members of Guildhall School’s Electronic Music department
We're delighted that the voice of the original TV series, Jon Glover, will be narrating.
Binge on the entire series or just drop in for a few episodes as Guildhall Session Orchestra players help bring Ludwig – and Beethoven – to a new generation in these free, informal performances for all ages. There will be a 'chill out zone' of cushions for comfortable watching.
