Ludwig van Beethoven’s Fidelio

AussieTheatre has TWO double passes to giveaway for Melbourne Opera’s Fidelio at the Athenaeum Theatre in Melbourne on Wednesday 5th February @ 7:30pm.

Inspired by an actual incident from the French Revolution, Fidelio tells the tale of a woman who dresses as a male prison guard to free her incarcerated husband. The opera touches on themes of freedom, fidelity and integrity melded with some of Beethoven’s finest and rarely performed music.

“The composition of Fidelio, his only opera, caused Beethoven much trouble, but he lavished all his love, care and genius upon its creation, and it remains a landmark and one of the great testaments to true humanity, expressed as only he could express it,” says Anthony Negus, who recently won a Green Room Award for Melbourne Opera’s Tristan and Isolde and is one of the world’s leading Wagnerian conductors.

An all-star cast has been assembled under the direction of veteran Hugh Halliday (Opera Australia, English National Opera and countless other esteemed companies), featuring Kirstin Sharpin as Leonora, Australian international stars Warwick Fyfe and Brad Daley as Pizarro and Florestan respectively with current Herald Sun aria winner Rebecca Rashleigh as Marzelline.

Competition closes Friday 31st January 2020 at 6pm AEST. Winners will be contacted via email.
