Eighteenth century Spain sets the scene for this dramatic tale of the nobleman Florestan, wrongly condemned to die in prison after exposing the political corruption of the tyrant Pizarro. That is until Florestan’s wife Leonare, disguised as a male prison guard named Fidelio, gains employment at the prison. Under the watchful eyes of husband’s captors, Leonare ultimately risks her life in an attempt to save her husband’s. Ludwig van Beethoven’s only opera, Fidelio is a stirring story of heroism, justice and love that is not to be missed. For information call (313) 961-3500.
