Ovations – Musical Excerpts – Fidelio


From the 2014/15 Season.

Leonore – even though she’s been told her husband is dead, Leonore
refuses to believe it and has spent the past two years searching for
him. Dressed as the man Fidelio, her long search is almost at its end. (Abscheulicher, wo eilst du hin?)

Florestan – a government whistle blower on the abuses of power
by the governor of the prison Don Pizarro, Florestan has been languishing
in the deepest part of the jail for two years, but hope is on the way. (Gott! Welch’ Dunkel hier!)

Don Pizarro – he’s got a plan to eliminate Florestan once and for
all for calling him out. Little does he know that just as he is about to succeed,
his plans will be thwarted. (Ha, welch ein Augenblick!)

Marzelline – daughter of Rocco and pursued endlessly by assistant
jailer Jaquino, Marzelline has her own ideas of who she’d like to
marry. (O wär ich schon mit dir vereint)
