Set in strong counterpointare the ingredients of domestic intrigue, determinedlove and the cruelty of an oppressive regime. Themusicis transcendent throughout and includes the famous Act I Quartet, the Prisoners’ Chorus and Florestan’s impassioned Act II cry in the darkness and vision of hope.

Tobias Kratzer’s new staging bringstogether the dark reality of the French Revolutionary ‘Terror’ and our own time to illuminate Fidelio’sinspiring message of shared humanity.
