It’s not all astronomy, programming, and devops around here. A few weeks ago, I got to see the Seattle Opera’s production of Fidelio. If you’re not familiar with Fidelio, go read about it over at Wikipedia and come back. Fidelio is a curious opera in some ways. It is both Beethoven’s only opera, and the only rescue opera commonly performed today. It is, however, an excellent opera, and well worth seeing or listening to if you have the chance.
