by Ludwig van Beethoven
Justice and love triumph over oppression and tyranny in Beethoven’s sole operatic work – a sublime celebration of freedom. Devoted wife Leonore poses as a man (Fidelio) in order to rescue her husband, wrongly imprisoned for his political beliefs. Beethoven’s highly dramatic score elevates the simple, powerful human drama to a higher plane. Vocal highlights include glorious ensembles, the moving “Prisoners’ Chorus,” an ecstatic love duet, and a triumphant final chorus that fills the stage with joy.
