The only opera by significant composer Ludwig van Beethoven received three different versions, and three separate premieres. However, only the last one, from 1814, on which the composer worked for 12 years, gained general admiration and was accepted by the European opera audience. The story, which takes place in a prison environment, emphasizes the human right to freedom of thought, to the space of free decision. It speaks of the will that governs our worlds, of its view of oneself, and of the fragility of the human life. Opera Fidelio is one of the basic pillars of opera literature of the 19th century and gives us the opportunity to meet a well-known symphonist during an unexpected conversation.
