Love. Justice. Freedom. Capturing the true genius of Beethoven in his one and only opera.

To celebrate the 250th anniversary of his birth, Melbourne Opera is thrilled to present Ludwig van Beethoven's only opera, Fidelio, conducted by leading international maestro Anthony Negus. Tickets are on sale now via Ticketek/(03) 9650 1500.

Inspired by an actual incident from the French Revolution, Fidelio tells the tale of a woman who dresses as a male prison guard to free her incarcerated husband. The opera touches on themes of freedom, fidelity and integrity melded with some of Beethoven’s finest and rarely performed music.

"The composition of Fidelio, his only opera, caused Beethoven much trouble, but he lavished all his love, care and genius upon its creation, and it remains a landmark and one of the great testaments to true humanity, expressed as only he could express it," says Anthony Negus, who recently won a Green Room Award for Melbourne Opera’s Tristan and Isolde and is one of the world’s leading Wagnerian conductors.
