Fidelio – A German Nightmare in Four Parts. Part 2: Rotz
In order to free her politically persecuted spouse from prison, Leonore works undercover as the prison guard Fidelio. But not only do the prisoners live dangerously but so does the prison personal: in a convoluted purgatory of torture and bureaucracy they are torn between career, fear and hope for personal luck, while the promised symphonic justice of the utopian republic seems to be a long time coming. Instead of fidelity and a textbook humanism, Leonore is awaited by a storm of black-snot-gold. Fidelio – A German Nightmare in four parts, a lesbian love story and grand desire for a fight.
In ЯOTZ, the second part of the series, Beethoven’s rescue opera drapes itself in red robes in order to hoodwink the corpses out of the dungeon of German idealism. Red is the blood of the rulers, red are the ankles of the righteous and the glowing irons that press themselves into her flesh. Red is the setting sun and the beginning of the celebration filled with kisses and scuffles perhaps even up until revolution. After just how many bottles does the belief in the state of law subside? After how many bottles do we throw open the doors of the prisons?
