The faithful wife of Florestan, Leonore, suspects that her husband is still alive. I shall probe his heart, Oh joy, oh great delight!

Glaubst du, dass ich das leiden werde?


Ereilt den FrevIer kein Gericht? Lassen wir ihn ein wenig warten. Marzelline similarly begs him, and Rocco agrees to distract Pizarro while the prisoners are set free. Fideloo Zuschauern links ist eine mit Steinen und Schutt bedeckte Cisterne. Jaquino and Marzelline are alone in Rocco’s house.

Rocco, a good man who obeys orders, however unjust, may be seen as a representative figure, while the prisoners in librwtto charge have their moment in the famous prisoners’ chorus that allows them to emerge for a moment into the fresher air.

Fidelio – Fidelio

Du wieder mein, an meiner Brust! Rocco is commanded to kill and bury the supposed criminal in the inner dungeon. He must no longer live, My ruin it would be.


Our friend and councillor you must remain.

Your arrival only called him away. You pay for luck to serve you well, It is a mighty thing, the gold. The windows have iron gratings, and the doors, which are numbered, strong bolts. Why did you not say as much when first I took it into my head to fall regularly in love with you? Wo eilst du hin? Doch es gibt ein Mittel! Alles was ich Euch anbieten kann, ist ein Restchen Wein, das ich im Kruge habe.

The Duet is sung in an undertone. Finally, for the revival Beethoven began anew, and with fresh musical material wrote what we now know as the Fidelio overture. Disguised as a boy, under the alias “Fidelio”, she gains employment working for Rocco. Florestan begs for a drop to drink, and Rocco tells Fidelio to give him one.
