Based on Leo Tolstoy’s pivotal novel of the same name, the story follows the French invasion of Russia in 1812, and was composed by Prokofiev during the Second World War. Fittingly for an opera with such strong themes of both war and peace, the work will be staged during the centenary of the Armistice of the First World War.
This new production is directed by WNO Artistic Director, David Pountney and conducted by Music Director, Tomas Hanus.
