Programme

Beethoven Fidelio

An activist is thrown into jail after attempting to expose a brutal regime’s crimes and corruption. Left to die in his cell, his only hope lies with his wife Leonora – who will go to any lengths to free her beloved from the chains of oppression.

Beethoven’s only opera is a moving tribute to the power of love and the enlightening strength of humanity that resonates with us today more than ever. Its music – from stirring choruses to the most intimate of arias – continues to delight and inspire.

The Philharmonia is Orchestra in Residence at this year’s Edinburgh International Festival. Catch us in different performances from chamber music to opera: Philharmonia at EIF 2022.
