German soprano Christiane Libor made her U.S. operatic debut at Seattle Opera on Saturday, October 13, 2012 in the role of Leonore in FIDELIO. Here, in an excerpt from her act one aria "Abscheulicher!", she prays for hope to illumine her goal, no matter how far it may be; then, in the fast movement, declares that "A wife's love for her husband drives me on and makes me strong." Asher Fisch conducts the orchestra of Seattle Opera, here featuring its mighty horn section: Jeff Fair, Jonathan Karschney, Richard Reed, and Ryan Stewart. Photo by Elise Bakketun.
