Benjamin Britten juxtaposes the anti-war poetry of Wilfred Owen with the timeless ritual of the Latin Requiem Mass. The result is a passionate outcry against man’s inhumanity to man.

Director Martyn Brabbins conducts this new production created to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War.

ENO Artistic Director Daniel Kramer’s contemporary staging seeks to examine and process the grief of the incomprehensible loss of life from wars past and present, offering us all a hope for the future.

War Requiem is performed by the combined forces of an 80-strong chorus, a children’s choir of 40 from Finchley Children’s Music Group, the full ENO Orchestra, a chamber orchestra, and three soloists.

War Requiem is booking from 16 November 2018 until 7 December 2018 at the London Coliseum.

WHAT’S THE STORY?

Communities divided.
Generations shattered.
Nations split apart.
Can a world fractured by war ever make peace with itself?
