Benjamin Britten’s ›Owen Wingrave‹

In cooperation with Naxos / Digital Classics Distribution the DSO exclusively presents as video-on-demand between Fri 22.05. and Fri 29.05. (4 pm respectively) a 2001 British Television production of Benjamin Britten’s opera ›Owen Wingrave‹, featuring Anne Dawson, Gerald Finley and Peter Savidge. Kent Nagano conducts the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin.

 

When Britten started to work on “Owen Wingrave” he conceived the opera both for performance on stage and for TV production. In fact the first TV production of Owen Wingrave was broadcasted in 1971, two years before opera premiere at Covent Garden. This 2001 production, made for Channel 4 television, intriguingly tells the drama of Owen, who refused to follow a military carees like his ancestors. The story, which has pacifism as its theme, was written by Henry James, and the libretto by Myfanwy Piper. British director Magaret Williams has adapted a number of stage works for the screen, many of which have won international accolades. Notable productions include thonas Ades' opera “Powder Her Face”, The Welsh National Opera's Poppea and Judith Weir's “Blond Eckbert” at the English National Opera.
