“Return Into Your Prison Now!” The Long Battle for Beethoven’s Fidelio

January 26, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join us on Sunday, January 26th at 2pm for “‘Return Into Your Prison Now!’ The Long Battle for Beethoven’s Fidelio,” a presentation by Dr. Jacob Bancks!

Beethoven wrote prodigiously in almost every genre: nine symphonies, 32 piano sonatas, five piano concertos, and sixteen string quartets. And operas? Only one: Fidelio of 1805… or was it 1806?… or 1814? In this lecture you will learn the fascinating story about how Beethoven’s opera about a prison became a prison for the composer himself.

This presentation is included with General Admission:
Adult: $5 | Senior: $4 | Child: $3 | Member: Free
