In the aftermath of the French Revolution, Beethoven composed electrifying music to the ballet The Creatures of Prometheus (Geschöpfe des Prometheus) – a musical firework full of hope and expectation. Beethoven could not foresee that his ‹Promethean› hero Napoleon would have crowned himself emperor only a few years later. The choreography of the narrative ballet was lost. The Basel author Alain Claude Sulzer has written his own text version in time for the Beethoven year which will be interpreted by the actor of the Viennese Burgtheater Peter Simonischek.
