LvB250 – Fidelio

Konserthuset Stockholm: Stora SalenHötorget 8, Stockholm, 10387, Schweden
Am Sonntag 23 Februar 2020 um 15:00

Beethoven composed only one opera and for it, he chose a narrative about passion, heroism and the struggle against tyranny – themes that reflected the situation in Europe at the time and which were close to his heart.

Political activist and nobleman Florestan is imprisoned. His wife Leonore dresses up like a man and under the alias of Fidelio, she gets a job in the prison to save her husband. The story is said to be based on actual events during the French Revolution, or at least, this is what the author of the French original Jean-Nicolas Bouilly claimed. Beethoven’s music spans from gently lyrical to violently dramatic.

At this unique concert performance, we will hear the Swedish Chamber Orchestra of Örebro and conductor Thomas Dausgaard with several renowned Swedish and international singers, featuring Nina Stemme in the titular role.
