Lise Davidsen as Fidelio and Jonas Kaufmann as Florestan in Fidelio

Beethoven’s only opera is a masterpiece, an uplifting story of risk and triumph. In this new production, conducted by Antonio Pappano, Jonas Kaufmann plays the political prisoner Florestan, and Lise Davidsen plays his wife Leonore (disguised as ‘Fidelio’) who daringly sets out to rescue him.
