Fidelio (DVD) - Kaufmann

Claus Guth's strikingly experimental new production of Beethoven's Fidelio drew fervent reactions at its premiere at the 2015 Salzburg Festival.

On an elegantly Spartan set suggestive of Freud s salon of the unconscious the opera is reworked with amplified noises and ambient sounds substituting for the traditional dialogue and the inclusion of hand-signing doppelgangers who shadow some of the lead characters.

Jonas Kaufmann's gorgeously sung Florestan (Financial Times) and Leonora triumphantly sung by Adrianne Pieczonka (The Guardian/Observer) masterfully execute Guth s conceptual exploration of the mind s ability to self-impose its own prison. The opera was conducted by Maestro Franz Wesler-Möst with the Vienna Philharmonic orchestra
