Fidelio, op. 72 by Ludwig van Beethoven( )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in German and held by 367 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

He has been shipwrecked on Tauris where he and his friend Pylade (Paul Groves) are condemned to die at the hands of the priestess Iphigénie (Susan Graham). At the sacrificial altar Oreste and Iphigénie suddenly realize they are brother and sister--and face slaughter by the angry king Thoas (William Shimell)
