Fidelio is one of the great operatic masterworks. The intensity and the endurance required of the singers make it a challenge to cast. It was Beethoven’s only opera, and a struggle for him to complete. Its themes of personal sacrifice, heroism and triumph touch the listener as much today as when it was premiered in 1805. This production will be led by Harry Bicket, who has won international praise for his work not only in the Baroque repertory, but in a wide range of music. The director is Stephen Wadsworth, who staged King Roger in the 2012 season.
