About

Beethoven’s only opera receives a reinvigorating modern update by visionary stage director Deborah Warner at Milan’s storied La Scala! The story of wrongly imprisoned Florestan and his wife Leonore’s heroic rescue mission, during which she disguises herself as the titular Fidelio, is ultimately representative of the triumph of freedom and humanity over venality and oppression. The glorious score is impeccably conducted by Daniel Barenboim, in his last production as La Scala’s musical director.

In Warner’s “sharp and relevant” envisioning of the action, full of “sublime” stagework and music (Bachtrack), Anja Kampe provides a “splendidly acted journey of discovery” in the title role, enhanced even further by bass Kwangchul Youn’s uncommon depth as jailer Rocco, Klaus Florian Vogt’s assured turn as Florestan, and a flawless supporting cast.
