The Leticia Jarvis Art Films Series
From the Salzburg Festival
The opera tells how Leonore, disguised as a prison guard named "Fidelio", rescues her husband Florestan from death in a political prison.
A story of personal sacrifice, heroism and eventual triumph (the usual topics of Beethoven's "middle period") with its underlying struggle for liberty and justice mirroring contemporary political movements in Europe.
This is Beethoven's only opera.
Starring: Jonas Kauffman, Adrianne Pieczonka, Sebastian Holecek, Tomasz Konieczny
Conducted by Franz Welser-Möst
