Opera Quiz: Which of Beethoven’s ‘Fidelio’ Characters Best Resembles You?

By David Salazar

Beethoven, born around Dec. 17, 1770 (he was baptized on that day), was one of the greatest composers of all time.

His musical and artistic legacy is ripe with symphonic music and great chamber works that endure to this day. However, he only wrote one opera – “Fidelio.”

This work is often cited as a flawed masterpiece with some sloppy subplots supporting a powerful narrative arc that climaxes in some of the artform’s greatest music. It also has some complex and unique characters. In celebration of the great master’s birthday, we’ve put together a quiz to see which of the characters from his lone opera best matches up with your personality.
