NCO re-opens with a concert performance of Beethoven’s only opera, Fidelio, a shining story of freedom and love. Florestan is a political prisoner. His wife, Leonore, disguises herself as a man – named “Fidelio” – and takes a job in the prison, hoping to find a way to free him while facing great danger along the way.  This tale of heroism is an ode to love’s triumph over tyranny, and is uniquely suited to Beethoven’s spirited and soulful voice.
