Opera aficionado gives preview of 'Fidelio'
September 27, 2012 · 4:30 PM
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.
