Hot on the heels of the success of the previous two live-streaming musical events, internationally acclaimed artist Hershey Felder’s new arts broadcasting company, Hershey Felder Presents – Live from Florence, has announced its next production, Hershey Felder as George Gershwin Alone, will stream live Sunday, September 13 from Teatro della Pergola at 5 pm PDT, 7 pm CDT and 8 pm EDT.
HERSHEY FELDER: GEORGE GERSHWIN ALONE
will be streamed live from Florence, Italy on Sunday, September 13, benefitting US arts organizations, creative artists and The Florentine.
Tickets ($55 per household) are available for purchase here. Includes viewing access to the live stream and additional one-week access to the recording:
Hershey Felder as George Gershwin Alone played over 3,000 performances seen by over two million people from Los Angeles to Broadway to the U.K., celebrated in both the public and by critics, and for several years was the highest grossing Gershwin entity. Similarly to Felder’s previous live-streamed events, proceeds will benefit theatres and arts organizations throughout North America and Europe at this critical time in history, in addition to a generous donation to The Florentine.
Directed by Stefano de Carli and Felder, Hershey Felder as George Gershwin Alone tells the story of America’s great composer, who with the groundbreaking “A Rhapsody in Blue”, made a “Lady out of Jazz”.
“Glorious! Poignant, moving and fascinating.”
“Felder’s performance is sublime.”
For the first time, Hershey Felder will bring George Gershwin to life on the stage of one of Europe’s oldest and most famous theatres, Teatro della Pergola, which was built in 1656 shortly after the invention of opera in Florence.
