Owen Wingrave, A Made For Tv Opera

Owen Wingrave, A Made For Tv Opera

Owen Wingrave, A Made For Tv Opera

BY BENJAMIN BRITTEN

Brief Description:
Owen Wingrave was conceived and composed as an opera for television.Based on a story by Henry James: the story of a y oung man who, groomed for a military career, rebels against his family for whom soldiering is a way of life. It provided Britten with an ideal opportunity to make a public statement of his deeply held pacifist beliefs. Far from being mere propaganda however, Owen Wingrave is a characteristically rich and multi-layered work, the supreme irony of Owen's predicament being that in his battle with his own family, he shows himself to be just as much of a fighter as any of his warmongering ancestors.
