Desperate to see her husband, Leonore disguises herself as the errand boy Fidelio and so infiltrates the dingy prison in which Florestan the prisoner of conscience is languishing. Beethoven’s only opera turns on the revolutionary ideals of liberty, equality, and fraternity. Rarely played in Paris, Fidelio finds an opera auditorium at the Opéra Comique that is very similar to the ones Beethoven knew back in the 1810’s. Together with Siobhan Stagg and Michael Spyres, Raphaël Pichon and Cyril Teste have created a performance induced with fiery musical intensity and politics. The live streaming of 'Fidelio' on the 1 October 2021, 20:00 CET online on arte.tv/opera marks the start of the fourth ARTE Opera Season.
The ARTE Opera Season is a European Opera Season that ARTE presents in partnership with leading opera houses from all over Europe since 2018 - available worldwide and with subtitles in six languages.
