A Perth Festival and West Australian Symphony Orchestra commission presented in association with West Australian Opera.

We’re celebrating the 250th anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven’s birth with a bold new concert event presented by Perth Festival and West Australian Symphony Orchestra in association with West Australian Opera.

Experience Beethoven’s only opera reframed with text written by award-winning Australian writer Alison Croggon and narrated by actor Eryn Jean Norvill interwoven with the music. Acclaimed German soprano Christiane Libor plays the heroic Leonore who hatches a daring plan to free her husband from the secret dungeon where he has been wrongfully imprisoned.

Beethoven’s ode to love, risk and resistance is rarely performed, but its relevance today is arguably greater than ever. Under the direction of Asher Fisch, the radiant score blazes with soul-stirring emotion in a timely meditation on the triumph of human will and freedom over injustice and tyranny.
