Fidelio

Ludwig van Beethoven
March 15, 2025

Soprano Lise Davidsen headlines an all-star cast in this striking production of Beethoven's rarely-performed opera: part political manifesto, part hymn to the beauty of marriage.

Met Opera in HD

Following a string of awe-inspiring Met performances, soprano Lise Davidsen stars as Leonore, who risks everything to save her husband from the clutches of tyranny. Tenor David Butt Philip is the political prisoner Florestan, sharing the stage with bass-baritone Tomasz Konieczny as the villainous Don Pizarro, veteran bass René Pape as the jailer Rocco, and soprano Ying Fang and tenor Magnus Dietrich, in his company debut, as the young Marzelline and Jaquino. Bass Stephen Milling sings the principled Don Fernando, and Susanna Mälkki conducts the Met's striking production. 

Modern-day parallels can be found in Beethoven's stirring paean to Enlightenment values: a political manifesto against tyranny and oppression, a hymn to the beauty and sanctity of marriage and an exalted affirmation of faith in God as the ultimate human resource.
