Music by Ludwig van Beethoven Libretto by Joseph von Sonnleithner, revised in 1806 by Stephan von Breuning and in 1814 by Georg Friedrich Treitschke, after Jean-Nicolas Bouilly's Léonore, ou L'amour conjugal (Leonora, or Married Love).


Sung in German with English Surtitles


A woman risks everything to rescue her husband, a political prisoner.


Beethoven's only opera, Fidelio tells a story as eternal as tyranny and as powerful as love. It goes straight to the heart of what it means to be human.


A timeless call for human justice, this magnificent work expresses Beethoven's heartfelt sense of the fragility of freedom and the necessity of hope – all with music of heart-stopping beauty.
