Salzburg Festival: Fidelio

Salzburg Festival: Fidelio Movie Poster

It happened in Tours at the time of the French Revolution: a political prisoner's wife disguised herself as a man in order to penetrate the prison where he was being held by the Jacobins, and was clever enough to gain the confidence of the jailer and free her loved one.

The episode had a sensational impact on contemporary hearts and minds at the end of the 18th century.
