ETO: King Priam
Sat 17 May 7.30pm
Troy is under siege. In the city, the old King recounts the events leading up to the war, waiting for his own death. All the familiar characters and stories – Hector and Achilles, Paris, Helen and the gods – are brought to life in this memorable meditation on the futility of war. Brilliant, insightful and musically gripping, King Priam is a prime example of British opera at its best.
Sung in English. Running Time: 2hrs 30mins
