Fidelio (6+)

A thrilling opera fairy tale

Leonore hasn’t seen her beloved Florestan for two years.
Pizarro has been holding Florestan captive for two years.
Is Florestan a dangerous monster? Or a sneaky thief?
Not at all. Florestan has one huge passion: singing.
And his songs make people dream.

 

Pizarro, however, will not tolerate such dreaming
He has decided to stop Florestan from singing once and for all.
To do so, he locks Florestan inside a secret dungeon, deep underground.
People will soon forget all about him.

 

But Leonore misses her Florestan. She simply cannot forget him.
She is determined to free her friend from cruel Pizarro’s claws.
