Ludwig van Beethovens only opera, Fidelio, is a rescue opera in two acts. The opera premiered on the 20th of November in in the Theater an der Wien , in 1805. Don Pizarro, governor of a Spanish prison, is known for his cruelty. Don Florestan plans to uncover these cruelties, but is caught by Don Pizarro and imprisoned himself. Don Florestan is thought dead by everyone. Only his wife Leonore still thinks her husband is alive. When she was disguised as a man, she began to work in prison under the name of Fidelio. With Leonore dressed as Fidelio, the opera processes the issue of freedom and loyalty.
