Role: The Prisoner
Conductor: Lothar Koenigs
Directer: David Pountney
This unique double-bill brings together the BBC National Orchestra of Wales alongside WNO Chorus and WNO Community Chorus.
The Prisoner was originally a radio opera based on a short story, and is paired with Act II from Beethoven’s only opera Fidelio, reflecting man’s innate desire for liberty.
These semi-staged operas will be directed by WNO Artistic Director David Pountney and conducted by former WNO Music Director Lothar Koenigs.
