Written at a time of war and social upheaval, Fidelio, Beethoven’s only opera, both belongs to and transcends its time. One of the greatest operas in the repertoire, it has come to represent the individual’s struggle for love, truth and freedom from political oppression and has as much resonance today as it ever did. With the glowingly courageous figure of Leonore at its heart, who risks all to rescue her husband from the clutches of the evil Don Pizarro, Fidelio represents humanity’s ability to survive and triumph in the face of tyranny.

2020 is the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth and to celebrate we revive John Cox’s acclaimed production with Gérard Korsten making his Garsington conducting debut. Toby Spence (Idomeneo, 2016) returns as Florestan with Johanni van Oostrum as Leonore, making her Garsington debut.

Sung in German with English supertitles.
