One of the things I hope to convey with my little blog here is a love of great music. Beethoven's only opera, Fidelio, has a closing finale that sends chills through my body every time I hear it. Below is a rather modern production of it (for some reason, one of the main characters is dressed as the Joker, which should give BDI a reason to watch it). At a minimum, play it in the background to enjoy the music, but if you have the time, enjoy the video as well. It's absolutely marvelous.
