The central tenor role of Florestan in Beethoven’s Fidelio is known as one of the most demanding and difficult in all opera. For his first complete opera recording for Decca, Jonas Kaufmann, “the world’s greatest currently performing tenor” (London’s Daily and Sunday Express), delivers everything the role demands: fearless tone, peerless style, and heart-stopping dramatic intensity. Charismatic Swedish soprano, Nina Stemme, excels in the complex and challenging title role, a touchstone of the heroic repertoire. Recorded live at the Lucerne Festival 2010 with the Festival Orchestra, this Fidelio is led by the legendary conductor Claudio Abbado – helping to make this release a major operatic event.
