Opera aficionado gives preview of 'Fidelio'

Opera aficionado Norm Hollingshead will give a Seattle Opera preview of “Fidelio” at 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29 at the Bainbridge Public Library.

Justice and love triumph over oppression and tyranny in Ludwig van Beethoven’s sole operatic work – a sublime celebration of freedom. Devoted wife Leonore poses as a man (Fidelio) in order to rescue her husband, wrongly imprisoned for his political beliefs.

The free program is funded by the Bainbridge Island Friends of the Library.
