‘My subject is War, and the pity of War.’ Benjamin Britten took sacred words and poetry of the First World War and combined them into a masterpiece that echoes down the decades – a timeless and profoundly moving exploration of man’s inhumanity to man, and an enduring symbol of reconciliation through art. True to Britten’s intentions, Thomas Søndergård has drawn world-class soloists from both Britain and Germany, joining the RSNO, its Chorus and Youth Chorus in a piece that’s never felt more relevant.
