Beethoven in Quebec City, a family performance

November 20 and 21

Ludovic dreams of becoming a champion of Guitar Hero, his favorite video game. As he’s trying to finish a particularly difficult level, a computer virus hits and wipes out all his progress. Catapulted into the video game, Ludovic goes on an epic adventure in search of a surprising page from the history of Quebec City. Help him complete the steps that will put him head-to-head with the 19th-century rock star Ludwig van Beethoven! 

Come and hear the music from the great composer Ludwig van Beethoven and learn about the circumstances surrounding the discovery of the one connection that links this universal genius with America. Specially created to celebrate Beethoven’s 250th birthday, this production by the P’tits Mélomanes du Dimanche will transport you to a magical universe where music, theater and history are one and the same.
