God, what darkness…

Listening to Orpheus (14)

Fidelio is Beethoven’s only opera. He struggled with it and called it “the martyr’s crown”. It is the reverse story of Orpheus. Florestan is imprisoned and his wife Leonore follows him to save him. In his dungeon he sings first of his trust in God, then has a vision of Leonore coming to save him.

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.
