Benjamin Britten addresses pacifism and the call to war in his gripping 1972 operatic drama, Owen Wingrave. Owen, the heir to the Wingrave family of warriors has chosen the path of pacifism. His family explodes into a paroxysm of anger and violence and Owen is disowned. Even his fiancée, Kate, rejects him, calling him a coward and challenging him to sleep in a room that none dare enter: a room with a history of family death. Owen accepts the challenge from Kate and disaster ensues. Don’t miss this rarely performed and timely opera of one man’s courage to pursue the path of peace and be true to his beliefs.
