Kelli Ann Masterson will perform Marzelline in ‘Fidelio’ by LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN with Irish National Opera in Dublin’s Gaiety Theatre.
The situation is grim. Florestan, an undocumented political prisoner reported as dead, is locked in a deep dungeon.
His wife Leonore still believes him to be alive and disguises herself as a man called Fidelio to get work in the prison. Don Pizarro, the tyrannical and abusive prison governor plans Florestan’s demise. And the upright minister Don Fernando rebalances the scales of justice. Beethoven’s only opera is an uplifting plea for love, justice and freedom.
