Madison Opera preview of Fidelio
Come to the Preview of Madison Opera's Fidelio by Ludwig van Beethoven. Beethoven’s only opera is an ode to freedom. To rescue her husband, a political prisoner, the noblewoman Leonore disguises herself as a man and works at the prison where she believes her husband is held. Ranging from breathtaking arias to one of the most beautiful choral tributes to freedom ever written, Beethoven’s score is truly sublime, with an ever-building dramatic intensity that leaves the audience exhilarated.
