Beethoven's only opera is a staple of companies the world over and among the most performed musical works of the nineteenth-century stage.
The composer's genius for orchestration is combined with the drama of the human voice, emotion-filled arias, and an intense finale. Valued for its bold sentiments of liberty and loyalty as well as its innovative music writing, Fidelio is an essential score for study by students, conductors, singers, and music scholars.
