Screened as part of the 2017 Fugard Bioscope World Arts Season. From The Salzburg Festival.

Fidelio stars astonishing tenor Jonas Kaufmann, who makes a wrenching, haunted Florestan, a Spanish nobleman unjustly jailed by the ruthless governor of a state prison for espousing principles of liberty. Starring alongside him is the compelling, bright-voiced soprano Adrianne Pieczonka as Leonore, Florestan’s tenaciously loving wife. She has disguised herself as a man (Fidelio) and secured a job in the prison where she suspects that her husband is being held — hoping, somehow, to rescue him.
