The Royal Opera House will broadcast Beethoven’s only opera, Fidelio, live at cinemas across the district this month, and the Times is giving readers a chance to win tickets in Clevedon.

An uplifting story of risk and triumph will take over the Curzon Cinema this month.

The production, conducted by Antonio Pappano, tells the story of political prisoner Florestan (Jonas Kaufmann) and his wife Leonore (Lise Davidsen), who is disguised as Fidelio and daringly sets out to rescue him.

Music includes Beethoven's act one quartet Prisoners' Chorus, as well as Florestan's impassioned solos in act two, Cry In The Darkness and Vision Of Hope.

Throughout the performance, German stage director Tobias Kratzer will bring together the dark reality of the French revolutionary terror and illuminate Fidelio's message of shared humanity.
