Wolfgang Wagner's production of his grandfather's opera
Fidelio, op. 72 by Ludwig van Beethoven( Recording )

16 editions published between 1978 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fidelio, Beethoven's only opera, was based on J.N. Bouilly's Léonore, ou L'amour conjugal, a rescue drama typical of the literature of the French Revolution. The story, possibly derived from a real incident, is a convoluted one, but its celebration of courage and idealism in the face of tyranny greatly appealed to the composer's personal values. The opera took a decade to reach its final form, and even though the work of the librettists in adapting the material left much to be desired -- Joseph Sonnleithner's rather turgid original efforts of 1805-1806 were only partially redeemed by the revisions of Georg Friedrich Treitschke in 1814 -- the end result, thanks to the extraordinary quality of the music, is one of the most powerful and moving operas ever written. - Disc 1 insert p. 3

44 editions published between 1978 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Götz Friedrich's 1970s production scandalized the Bayreuth old guard while revealing Tannhäuser's revolutionary qualities to a new age of Wagner lovers. 'Davis's conducting is nothing short of magnificent, while the singing is truly on a festival level' (New York Daily News). 'The performances throughout are superb-- Jones is stunningly effective.' (New York Times). 'In Jürgen Rose's beautiful settings-- an excellent introduction to a new approach to Wagner's world' (Le Quotidien de Paris)"--Container
