Beethoven: Missa solemnis
Savonlinna Opera Festival made its comeback in summer 1967. The work chosen for this momentous occasion was the opera Fidelio by Ludwig van Beethoven. Now, 50 years later, the Festival has chosen his magnificent Mass in D major, op. 123 (the Missa solemnis), considered by him to be his greatest achievement, to mark the half-century.
