Irish National Opera presents Fidelio

Irish National Opera presents Fidelio

Sunday, 7 November 2021, 5.00pm

Fidelio – Ludwig Van Beethoven
7–13 November, Gaiety Theatre, Dublin

The situation is grim. Florestan (Robert Murray), an undocumented political prisoner reported as dead, is locked in a deep dungeon.

His wife Leonore (Sinéad Campbell Wallace) still believes him to be alive and disguises herself as a man called Fidelio to get work in the prison. Don Pizarro (Brian Mulligan), the tyrannical and abusive prison governor plans Florestan’s demise. And the upright minister Don Fernando (David Howes) rebalances the scales of justice. Beethoven’s only opera is an uplifting plea for love, justice and freedom.

Sung in German with English surtitles
Conducted by Fergus Sheil

Fidelio In Focus, a free online introduction to the opera with Deborah Kelleher, takes place on 1 November. Booking information to be announced.
