Quotes & Highlights
“James Conlon… drives the score with propulsive enthusiasm that takes, so to speak,no prisoners.” -Los Angeles Times
“Fidelio kicked off the company’s 21st season in splendid form this past weekend… a veritable explosion of mechanical shapes, wheels and staircases… pure magic!" -Variety* *
Music Director James Conlon opens LA Opera’s season with Beethoven’s Fidelio, a celebration of humanity’s desire for freedom and justice. More than 200 years after its premiere, this drama of wrongful imprisonment and the triumph of true love remains as relevant as ever.
p. Unjustly incarcerated by a ruthless oppressor, Florestan languishes in a secret prison, held without charge or trial. His wife Leonore, desperate to find him and willing to die if she must, adopts the disguise of a young man – Fidelio – and becomes the jailer’s assistant, hoping to free her beloved husband.
This astonishingly forceful contemporary production resonates with edge-of-your-seat excitement and matchless music, complete with stunning arias, inspiring choruses, two of the most famous quartets in all of opera, and exuberant orchestral writing.
