The Royal Opera's Fidelio // Performance on Screen

Celebrate the 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birth with this new production of the composer’s only opera, starring star tenor Jonas Kaufmann and rising sensation Lise Davidsen. A transcendent tale of risk and triumph, Fidelio opens in the dark throws of revolutionary France, which seethes with suspicion, fear and cruelty. As political prisoner Florestan fights for his life in a dungeon, his wife Leonore (disguised as ‘Fidelio’) daringly sets out to rescue him. Director Tobias Kratzer’s provocative new staging brings together the dark reality of 18th century France and our own time to illuminate Beethoven’s inspiring message of shared humanity.

Sung in German with English subtitles. Includes one intermission. __________________________________________________
