Beethoven’s only opera has captivated audiences worldwide with its themes of justice, freedom, and the power of the human spirit. Leonore’s husband, Florestan, a political rival of the villainous Don Pizzaro, is wrongfully imprisoned. Determined to rescue him, Leonore disguises herself as a young man named Fidelio and gets a job in prison, earning the trust of the jailer, Rocco. As news breaks that a government official is visiting the prison to investigate rumors of cruelty, Don Pizarro decides to execute Florestan. Will Leonore be able to save her love from certain death?

Sung in German with English translations above the stage.

Expect Even More Artistic Brilliance In Season 17!

Our theme for Season 17 is a timely one as the great powers struggle on the world stage.

Our three mainstage operas feature the struggles of three very different women. What price will they pay for the freedom of their loved ones as they scheme, deceive, and kill to achieve it?

In Tosca, politics and intrigue swirl around a famous diva as she tries to free her lover from a tyrannical police chief. A wife disguises herself as a man to liberate her husband from prison in Fidelio. The heroine of L’Italiana in Algeri is a clever enchantress who must trick her way to free herself, her fiancé, and her people.

What would you sacrifice?
