The Teatro Mayor Julio Mario Santo Domingo will transmit a performance of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony on its Teatro Digital between April 23-30.

The performance features the Orchester Wiener Akademie on period instruments under the musical direction of Martin Haselböck. The soloists in the performance included soprano Melba Ramos, mezzo-soprano Andrea Orjuela, tenor Gustavo López, Manzitti, and Baritone Günter Haumer.

The performance was dedicated to the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birthday.

This is the latest of several performances that the Teatro Julio Mario Santo Domingo has made available on its Teatro Digital. The company launched the platform with a presentation of Mozart’s “Don Giovanni” a few weeks ago and recently showcased Rossini’s “Il Barbiere di Siviglia” with a cast headlined by Valeriano Lanchas in a celebration of the 25th anniversary of his career.
