Austin Opera presents Fidelio: A Celebratory Gala Production
Austin Opera’s season concludes with Fidelio: A Celebratory Gala Production. Beethoven wrote Fidelio, his only opera, in response to the volatile political situation in Europe during his time, and his themes of social justice, the meaning of freedom, and the power of love and fidelity are still remarkably relevant.
This new production stars Alexandra Loutsion as the heroine Leonora, Sean Panikkar as her imprisoned lover Florestan, and Musa Ngqungwana as the jailer Rocco, all in their Austin Opera debuts. The Austin Opera Orchestra and Chorus is conducted by Timothy Myers, the Sarah and Ernest Butler Principal Conductor & Artistic Advisor.
