    “Nameless Joy!” they sing at the end of this unusual Fidelio production: Steadfast friendship and moral courage have defeated despotism and tyranny. Beethoven’s only opera tells the story of the freedom-loving Florestan, who is held prisoner for political reasons by the repressive governor Pizarro. But Florestan’s girlfriend Leonore (in this children’s opera they are not yet married) devises a plan to free him and, disguised as the prison guard Fidelio, sneaks into Pizarro’s diabolical world. But can a single human bring down the Pizarro system? On Beethoven Day, we will present an adaptation of Fidelio for small Festival visitors. They will be right at the center of the action and even a decisive actor. And they will get an impression of what it might feel like to be in a society ruled by others and how difficult it is to stand by one’s ideals in such a society. But also a sense that hope is omnipresent and that things can change (for the better) – especially when you stick together!
