On the occasion of the composer’s 250th birthday, the ORF broadcasts Ludwig van Beethoven’s “Fidelio” live from the Theater an der Wien.

It is not only the premiere location of the opera: throughout his life, it was the only opera house Beethoven was engaged in. His employment began in 1803 and also required him to write operas. But Beethoven’s relationship with this genre was difficult. Premiered in 1805 and revised several times, “Fidelio” remained Beethoven’s only opera. Nevertheless, it has emerged as a humanistic masterpiece, an anthem to freedom, that is now part of the core repertoire of every opera house.
In the Beethoven Year 2020 the Theater an der Wien shows “Fidelio” in its second version of 1806. Manfred Honeck is at the podium of the Wiener Symphoniker. The Austrian actor and Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz is responsible for the staging.
