Sir Peter Hall’s outstanding 1979 Glyndebourne Festival Opera production of Fidelio remains remarkably faithful to the way Beethoven intended the opera to be. The stage directions of the original version – completed in 1814 after two revisions – are followed exactly by Sir Peter.

BBC Music Magazine

February 2006


“Söderström's tour de force of suffering and deliverance, Hall's realistic, intimate yet intellectually driven production, and Haitink's vivid conducting makes this the best version on DVD.”
