WNO War & Peace 18/19
War and Peace joins with all the great war epics in being able to shift in a moment from public to private drama, from intensity of personal emotion to the surge of national determination, and this is ideal territory for the language of opera: to thrill us and move us on the grandest and most intimate scale.
With 32 roles – 22 of which are sung by the wonderful WNO Chorus – creating an opera of this magnitude is a significant undertaking for the Company, and so we would be extremely grateful if you would consider helping us to bring this Russian epic to the stage. There are many elements of War and Peace that need your support so get involved and of course, join us for a performance of this wonderful work which is relatively rarely performed.
