Boston Baroque presents Beethoven’s ‘Fidelio’

The Grammy-nominated Boston Baroque is set to present Beethoven’s only opera “Fidelio” in its Boston Baroque debut performance.

The presentation will represent the first-ever period instrument presentation of the work in Boston and will offer a rare opportunity for audiences to enjoy a semi-staged showcase of the two-act version of “Fidelio.”

The performance will be conducted by Music Director Martin Pearlman and will be directed by Mark Streshinsky. “Fidelio” will feature soprano Wendy Bryn Harmer as Leonore/Fidelio, tenor William Burden as Florestan, bass-baritone Nathan Stark as Rocco, soprano Anna Christy as Marzelline, tenor Andrew Stenson as Jaquino, baritone Mark Walters as Don Pizarro, and bass Brian Kontes as Don Fernando.

“This will be the first time a period-instrument performance of ‘Fidelio’ will be presented in Boston, and only the second time in North America. We are particularly excited to present Beethoven’s only opera with a stellar cast of singers in a setting acoustically fitting for our period-instrument orchestra,” said Executive Director Miguel Rodriguez in a press release.

Performances are scheduled for April 13 and 15, 2018.
