Ludwig van Beethoven

Fidelio

LIVE RECORDING FROM THE GLYNDEBOURNE FESTIVAL OPERA, 1979

Leonore/Fidelio - Elisabeth Söderström
Rocco - Curt Appelgren
Marzelline - Elizabeth Gale
Don Pizaro - Robert Allman
Florestan - Anton De Ridder
The London Philharmonic Orchestra / Bernard Haitink
Stage Director - Peter Hall

Sir Peter Hall’s outstanding 1979 Glyndebourne Festival Opera production of Fidelio remains remarkably faithful to the way Beethoven intended the opera to be. The stage directions of the original version – completed in 1814 after two revisions – are followed exactly by Sir Peter Hall. Yet he still manages to inject fresh excitement and suspense into Fidelio with John Bury’s original lighting and design providing a perfect framework for the drama and confl icts that centre on political intrigue and repression. The London Philharmonic Orchestra is conducted by Bernard Haitink.

Don Florestan has been falsely imprisoned for threatening to expose the evils of governor Don Pizarro. While he starves to death with other political prisoners his wife, Leonore tries to find him. She disguises herself as the young man, Fidelio, and wins the confi dence of the gaoler, Rocco and his daughter Marzelline.

Elisabeth Söderström portrays the courageous Leonore in such a riveting and outstanding performance that alone is worth the whole show. Elizabeth Gale as Marzelline and Curt Appelgren as Rocco bring this unique production to perfection.
