Beethoven
Fidelio

Beethoven’s powerful, and only, opera not only embodies the spirit of liberty and political freedom but is also the composer’s paean to the triumph of married love. With the great Bruno Walter leading an incomparable cast, this is a performance for the ages. Legendary Kirsten Flagstad is Leonore, the heroine determined to stop at nothing to free her husband, Florestan (Set Svanholm), from death at the hands of his evil political enemy Don Pizarro (Paul Schöffler).
