Synopsis

As Beethoven’s only opera, Fidelio has delighted audiences for centuries with its themes of justice, freedom, and the strength of the human spirit. Fidelio is formally a singspiel (a piece with musical numbers separated by spoken dialogue), and it tells the story of a determined wife, Leonore, trying to find her husband, Florestan. Leonore goes through many trials in her fearless determination and resolve to rescue her husband. With Beethoven’s glorious score and the opera's uplifting spirit, Fidelio remains a favorite of opera lovers everywhere.
