Benjamin Britten: War Requiem
28 February – 1 March 2020
National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts
Weiwuying, Kaohsiung City
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. Wolfgang Tillmans will be joining the production team as designer making his ENO debut. Chein Wen-pin, Artistic Director of National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts (Weiwuying), conducts this new co-production, along with Daniel Kramer's contemporary staging. War Requiem is performed by the three soloists, the full NTSO Orchestra, a chamber orchestra with the combined forces of an 80-strong chorus and a children's choir of 40.
