Courage, persistence and liberty are the central themes of Fidelio, Beethoven’s only opera, but he called on all three qualities to write the score in the first place. As in every other form he touched, Beethoven opened new doors in opera too – striving to fuse melodrama, operatic set-piece and symphonic thinking and adumbrating a thrilling, fertile new path in the process. A perfect cast joins Marios Papadopoulos for Beethoven’s musical reflection of love, freedom and justice and a notable highlight of the Oxford Beethoven Festival. 

The concert is scheduled to end at approximately 21.55
