Owen Wingrave

Music by Benjamin Britten
Libretto by Myfanwy Piper based on a novella by Henry James.
Performed by arrangement with Faber Music Ltd, London.
Owen is a committed pacifist who courageously takes on his family and their long-standing tradition of militarism and war. Benjamin Britten was himself a lifelong pacifist, and this deeply personal work gives dramatic voice to his passionately held conviction.
In association with Southbank Sinfonia
