Beethoven’s only opera, Fidelio, was written as the famous composer reckoned with deafness.

Music sung by hearing vocalists and expressive gestural poetry using sign language by Deaf actors. This collaboration gave way to a new experience of Fidelio, one for both Deaf and hearing audiences to enjoy.
