The only opera that Ludwig van Beethoven wrote, Fidelio, has never ceased to attract music connoisseurs since it premiered in Vienna in 1805. The new production of the work includes an imposing set shaped like a double helix that evokes the prison near Seville where the action takes place.

Marked by strong chiaroscuros, this stepped double helix rises dramatically from the floor to form a topography that creates a dark and sublime atmosphere much in tune with the heroic tone of Fidelio, without neglecting the symbolic and scenic potential of its display.
