'War Requiem' at ENO

Time Out says

Benjamin Britten's emotive choral masterpiece is being revived at ENO to mark the centenary of the end of WWI. 'War Requiem' weaves together Wildred Owen's scabrous anti-war poetry with the Latin words of the Requiem mass, set to music that's soaked in grief, and is performed by an 80-strong chorus, a children's choir, and three soloists.

ENO boss Daniel Kramer's visually striking, contemporary production features visuals by legendary German photographer Wolfgang Tillmans - who's making his first foray into opera, but has already shown an appetite for interdisciplinary collabs after contributing a track to Frank Ocean's 2016 album 'Endless'.
