Fidelio: London Philharmonic Orchestra
But as the world goes about its business above him, someone has remembered his plight – and maybe, just maybe, the new prison-warder Fidelio holds the key to his fate. This is a tale of disguises and escapes, of tyranny and freedom, of heroism and love, all set to music of soul-stirring nobility and compassion, and it loses none of its power in concert.
Vladimir Jurowski and the LPO are joined by London Voices and a world-class cast to retell one of the most inspiring stories ever set to music.
Concert generously supported by Victoria Robey OBE.
