Event Details

Austin Opera’s season concludes in spring 2022 at the Long Center with Fidelio: A Celebratory Gala Production. Beethoven wrote Fidelio, his only opera, in response to the volatile political situation in Europe during his time, and his themes of social justice, the meaning of freedom, and the power of love and fidelity are still remarkably relevant. This new production stars Alexandra Loutsion as the heroine Leonora, Sean Panikkar as her imprisoned lover Florestan, and Musa Ngqungwana as the jailer Rocco, all in their Austin Opera debuts. The Austin Opera Orchestra and Chorus is conducted once again by Timothy Myers, the Sarah and Ernest Butler Principal Conductor & Artistic Advisor.

Both performances will include events celebrating Austin Opera’s resilience and will raise funds in support of the company’s future in the areas of innovation, impact, and artistic excellence as part of the Austin Opera Forward Campaign. At the first performance on Friday, April 29, 2022, attendees can purchase tickets to a celebratory black tie gala on the H-E-B Terrace including a pre-show cocktail hour, an elegant seated dinner, and an exclusive after-party under the tent with the artists. On Sunday, May 1, 2022 attendees can purchase tickets to an exclusive season-ending reception following the performance featuring Fidelio’s principal cast and members of the Austin Opera Orchestra and Chorus.
