A concert performance of Beethoven's only opera, Fidelio, conducted by Daniel Barenboim, accompanied by a cast of international singers and the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, formed of young Israeli and Arab musicians. The opera is a passionate protest against political injustice and a hymn of praise to the power of human love. Sung in German, this performance uses English narration written by the orchestra's co-founder, the late Edward Said. Presenter and Beethoven enthusiast John Suchet is joined by some of the artists and special guests.
