The spotlight is on powerful women in this January concert. The concert opens with the overture to Beethoven’s only opera, Fidelio, in which the heroine, Leonore, courageously rescues her unjustly imprisoned husband. The woman that inspired Berlioz’s revolutionary masterpiece Symphonie Fantastique was the Irish actress Harriet Smithson. The entire symphony is an impassioned expression of his unrequited love for her, with the different movements portraying the opium-induced visions of a lovesick young artist in the depths of despair.
