The most powerful masterpiece of the composer of Death in Venice and The Midsummer Night's Dream recovers in a moving staging by three exceptional singers.
A conscientious objector, traumatized by the war which he had approached with horror, Britten was an irreducible opponent of military violence. For his Requiem, in militant gesture, he gathered three soloists from enemy nations during the Second World War, and associated to the liturgical text of the English poems Wilfred Owen, who died in the last days of the First World War.
In Britten's familiar, the Japanese director Yoshi Oida brings back this War Requiem ; Intertwining the echoes of his own memory with the images of the conflicts that shook the world in recent decades, he reveals the echoes powerfully contemporary.
