Fidelio - Schedule, Program & Tickets


Leonore suspects that her husband, Florestan, has been imprisoned for fearlessly challenging tyranny. Disguised as a youth, Fidelio, is taken on as the jailor´s assistant and overhears preparations for an execution in the prison. She determines to secure Florestan´s release... Step by step, Leonore draws us into a drama whose power to involve is unparalleled in opera. Through her every word, charged with desperate courage, we experience love, loyalty and the will to be free. From the dungeon scene, through the spoken dialogue and on to the heart-stopping climax, we are in the realms only Beethoven occupied. ´Fidelio´ is the first great drama in German opera. Its themes - human values and marital love - have produced one of the glories of Western art.
