Just Started New Film About Beethoven's Fidelio

Just started production on a new film tentatively titled Love And Justice: Beethoven's Fidelio (Love and Liberation a better title? send your favorite), about Beethoven's only opera. The opera tells the story of the political prisoner Florestan who is rescued from a tyrant by his wife Leonore. Like Following The Ninth, this will not be a traditional film about a performance, but a bringing together parts of Beethoven's biography (the so-called "heroic" period), and stepping outside the opera into our world of incarceration and political prisoners. My first interview was with Jan Swafford, who published a Beethoven biography last year. I'll keep you posted. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CcYodDn5Q-o

PS: And, of course, if anyone has still not received their DVD, please let me know. I will be in New England (Worcester, MA, Burlington and Middlebury, VT., and northern Maine) during the first two weeks of July. If you are in the area just write to me and come to a screening as my guest.

Below is a short clip from a concert I filmed with the Santa Barbara Symphony Ochestra, with Nir Kabaretti with the Baton.

I'll be in Allentown, PA on March 26th.

If anyone is in the area, please come out for the screening. Sponsored by the Allentown Symphony. I'm also looking for another place in the area to screen the film while I'm there.

Sincerely,

Kerry  www.followingtheninth.com
