The Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra, cast and chorus present a semi-staged version of Beethoven’s only opera, Fidelio. Written at the time of the French Revolution, Fidelio is an example of a “rescue opera,” a type of opera where the hero or heroine must fight against cruel people to rescue a lover. Happy 250th, Ludwig!
