Fidelio - Oper von Ludwig van Beethoven / Musikalische Bearbeitung des Finales von Annette Schlünz / Weiterentwickelte Übernahme vom Theater Bremen / Libretto von Joseph Sonnleithner, Stephan von Breuning und Georg Friedrich Treitschke nach Jean Nicolas B

Staatstheater Darmstadt / Großes Haus | 64283 Darmstadt

Als „Rettungsoper“ im Geiste der Französischen Revolution komponiert, verhandelt Beethovens einzige Oper „Fidelio“ die Überwindung von Willkür und Tyrannei geprägter Machtstrukturen durch eine todesmutige Frau: Leonore. Ihr gelingt es, als Mann verkleidet und unter dem Decknamen Fidelio, ihren Mann Florestan aus den Fängen seines Widersachers Don Pizarro zu befreien. Was war Freiheit früher, was ist sie heute?

Beethoven Mystery XXL - Competition for children

Bayerischer Rundfunk, Funkhaus München | 80300 München

What's up with Beethoven? It's the middle of the night: the ingenious composer is sitting at his piano by candlelight. His hair is dripping wet and there's a pool of water on the floor. The room is pretty chaotic, he has just completed his 62nd move and the boxes are still half unpacked. Someone knocks on the door. What happened? Was Beethoven playing too loudly? Was he rude to the neighbour? Or is there a dark secret behind it all?
