September 20 – October 6, 2013 in the Cabot Theatre
Music by Ludwig van Beethoven
Libretto by Joseph Ferdinand von Sonnleither, Stefan von Breuning & Georg Friedrich Treischke
Stage and Music Direction by Viswa Subbaraman
Our new Artistic Director, Viswa Subbaraman will open his very first production at Skylight with a unique staging of the tale of Fidelio by Ludwig van Beethoven. A timeless story that deals with love, freedom, the purity of purpose and of course mistaken identity; Skylight turns this work on its head by setting it as a classic Bollywood film! Subbaraman will combine Beethoven’s dramatic score with a moving chorus of colorfully dressed Indian dances on a set designed by the modern artist Raghava KK. The Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek will also collaborate with Skylight as they transcend culture, society and ethnicity, ultimately showing we all share similar values. Skylight will perform Fidelio in English.
