The Santa Fe Opera: Fidelio with Harry Bicket
Beethoven toiled for a decade on Fidelio, his impassioned opera of love, freedom, and perseverance in the face of political oppression. Performing illustrations at the piano with vocal soloists, Harry Bicket, Chief Conductor of The Santa Fe Opera, demonstrates why this single masterwork secures Beethoven's place among the greatest of opera composers—and why it remains timely today. Maestro Bicket will lead a historic new production directed by Stephen Wadsworth in Santa Fe in summer 2014. Singers include Alex Penda (Leonore) and Paul Groves (Florestan).
