THE only work of opera by one of the world’s greatest composers will be brought to life in all of its triumphant glory in Bangor.

The Royal opera House’ production of Beethoven’s Fidelio screens live to Pontio on Tuesday, March 17 at 7.15pm.

In this new production, opera star Jonas Kaufmann plays the political prisoner Florestan, and Lise Davidsen his wife Leonore - disguised as Fidelio - who daringly sets out to rescue him.

Tobias Kratzer's new staging brings together the dark reality of the French Revolutionary 'Terror' and our own time to illuminate Fidelio's inspiring message of shared humanity.

Set in strong counterpoint are the ingredients of domestic intrigue, determined love and the cruelty of an oppressive regime with a transcendent score which includes the famous Act I Quartet, the Prisoners Chorus and Florestan's impassioned Act II cry in the darkness and vision of hope.
