Minona

Theater am Bismarckplatz | 93047 Regensburg

The Beethoven Year 2020 starts at the Regensburg Theatre with the world premiere of the opera "Minona" by the Estonian composer Jüri Reinvere, who is already well known in Germany in the field of symphonic music. With "Minona", he introduces himself to the German opera audience for the first time.

 

On the occasion of Ludwig van Beethoven's 250th birthday, the opera is dedicated to the fate of Minona von Stackelberg. Evidence suggests that she is Beethoven's biological daughter.

Kirill Petrenko and the Berliner Philharmoniker Interpret “Fidelio”.

Berliner Philharmonie | 10785 Berlin

Beethoven’s only opera Fidelio is a plea for overcoming the power of despotism and tyranny – and a hymn to love. Beethoven’s lifelong motto, “Freyheit über alles lieben; Wahrheit nie, (auch am Throne nicht) verläugnen” (To love liberty above all else, never to deny the truth, even though it be before the throne) is reflected vividly in his work. Kirill Petrenko conducts the work in the Philharmonie following performances at the Baden-Baden Easter Festival. The title role is sung by Marlis Petersen, the current artist in residence of the Berliner Philharmoniker.
