From the Zurich Opera House: "Fidelio" by Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827). Conductor: Bernard Haitink - Stage director: Katharina Thalbach. With Melanie Diener (Leonore), Roberto Saccà (Florestan), Alfred Muff (Rocco), Lucio Gallo (Don Pizarro), Kresimir Strazanac (Don Fernando), Sandra Trattnig (Marzelline) and Christoph Strehl (Jaquino). "Bernard Haitink grabs the score, carves it into a warm and compact musical shape, and sheds the brightest light onto the multitude of motivic connections and contrapuntal reactions" (NZZ). Ezio Toffolutti's stage depicts the interior of a prison and recalls the monumental prison etchings of Piranesi.
