  • Sir Peter Hall's outstanding 1979 Glyndebourne Festival Opera production of Fidelio remains remarkably faithful to the way Beethoven intended the opera to be. The stage directions of the original version - completed in 1814 after two revisions - are followed exactly by Sir Peter.
  • Yet he still manages to inject fresh excitement and suspense into Fidelio with John Bury's original lighting and design providing a perfect framework for the drama and conflicts that centre on political intrigue and repression.
  • Elisabeth Söderström with her "gleaming tone and elegant, long-limbed phrasing" (The Guardian) portrays the courageous Leonore in such a riveting and outstanding performance that alone is worth the whole show.
