Disguised as the prison guard Fidelio, Leonore (Lise Davidsen) infiltrates a political prison to rescue her dissident husband Florestan (Jonas Kaufmann) from execution at the hands of an oppressive regime. This new staging of Beethoven’s only opera evokes the French Reign of Terror—and the contemporary moment—in this uplifting story of risk, triumph, and shared humanity.
