Beethoven
Fidelio

A prolific composer of symphonic and chamber music, Ludwig van Beethoven only created one opera over the course of his entire career. Nevertheless, his Fidelio, which he continued to revise for a decade after its original premiere, includes much of the stirring music for which he is famous. As Leonore, the devoted wife on a mission to save her beloved, soprano Adrianne Pieczonka fearlessly tackles the role’s challenging vocal demands. Tenor Klaus Florian Vogt is Florestan, her imprisoned husband, and brings a penetrating urgency to his performance. Veteran bass-baritones Falk Struckmann and Greer Grimsley play the warm-hearted jailer Rocco and the menacing prison warden Don Pizarro, respectively, alongside Hanna-Elisabeth Müller and David Portillo as a pair of on-again-off-again young lovers. Conductor Sebastian Weigle is on the podium for this uplifting tale of the triumph of love over unjust oppression.
