Lise Davidsen in Sold-Out Performances at Royal Opera House



Antonio Pappano conducts Lise Davidsen and Jonas Kaufmann in a new production of Beethoven's only opera, Fidelio. Jonas Kaufmann sings the role of Florestan and Lise Davidsen sings as Leonore. Lise Davisen is a rising lyric dramatic soprano who has attracted serious attention ever since she was crowned winner of both the Operalia and the Queen Sonja competitions. We are all eagerly looking forward to her portrayal of Leonore in this outstanding production alongside opera superstar, Jonas Kaufmann.



ABOUT THE OPERA


"Beethoven’s only opera is a masterpiece, an uplifting story of risk and triumph. In this new production, conducted by Antonio Pappano, Jonas Kaufmann plays the political prisoner Florestan, and Lise Davidsen his wife Leonore (disguised as ‘Fidelio’) who daringly sets out to rescue him. Set in strong counterpoint are the ingredients of domestic intrigue, determined love and the cruelty of an oppressive regime. The music is transcendent throughout and includes the famous Act I Quartet, the Prisoners’ Chorus and Florestan’s impassioned Act II cry in the darkness and vision of hope. Tobias Kratzer’s new staging brings together the dark reality of the French Revolutionary ‘Terror’ and our own time to illuminate Fidelio’s inspiring message of shared humanity." -Royal Opera house
