A performance of Beethoven's Fidelio is the subject of this film, which attempts to enliven the staged German-language performance at the Roman Theater at Orange by using odd camera angles and a constantly moving camera. The result was panned by both opera lovers and film critics. The London New Philharmonic Choir and the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra are directed here by Zubin Mehta.
