Fidelio am Rhing

Oper Köln im Staatenhaus | 50679 Köln

The "Cäcilia Wolkenburg" theatre ensemble has been adapting well-known musical works for 145 years and will be performing its "Rhenish dialect musical" with a large ensemble a total of 30 times at the Cologne Opera during 2020. "Fidelio am Rhing" relates to the fact that Beethoven spoke the Rhenish dialect all of his life and the plot will therefore not take place in Spain as intended by Beethoven, but in the Rhineland of the 20th century.

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.
