Fidelio, op. 72 by Ludwig van Beethoven( Recording )

16 editions published between 1978 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 274 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
