Fidelio celebrates the power of love, courage and fidelity in music of heart-soaring beauty.
Held prisoner by the despotic Don Pizarro, Florestan faces a slow and inevitable death. Determined to save him, his wife Leonore devises a daring plan – one that puts not only Florestan but herself in gravest danger. Truth and goodness confront corruption and cruelty in an opera that reveals both the heights and the ugly depths of human nature.
Fidelio, with its stirring Prisoners’ Chorus, is a musical shout of fury and an impassioned cry of hope – still as powerful a political statement as it was during the French occupation of Beethoven’s Austria. It’s also a love story, celebrating not the thrill of first love, but the enduring, quiet devotion of marriage in music of transcendent beauty. Beethoven’s only opera is a masterpiece of moral courage, humanity and musical invention.
Frederic Wake-Walker directs a striking new production.
There will be a performance for schools of Fidelio. More information will be available soon.
