Jeremy made his debut as narrator of ‘Egmont’, a work composed by Beethoven for the drama written by Goethe and adapted into English by Christopher Hampton.

This innovative programme, devised by the orchestra of the Wiener Akademie, links together a soprano voice, pieces of incidental music, and the actor Jeremy Irons telling the story of Egmont.  The text for this work was adapted from Goethe’s play by Christopher Hampton, the Oscar-winning script writer.
