Beethoven's ninth symphony, performed in a spectacular Roman amphitheatre
Beethoven’s ninth symphony gets a run-out in the suitably magnificent surroundings of Pula’s amphitheatre, performed by the orchestra and choir of the Croatian National Theatre in Rijeka. Beethoven's final complete symphony, his ninth, is one of the most famous and frequently performed pieces of classical music in the world, acting as the anthem of a united Europe, the hymn of German workers, its recital is an annual festive tradition in Japan.
