THE GREEK PASSION – BOHUSLAV MARTINŮ
Sung in English with English titles

This is Manolios. He’s about to sacrifice everything.

When a group of desperate refugees arrives in a small village seeking help and shelter, deep rifts tear the community in two. Manolios, one of the villagers, pleads with his neighbours to show compassion for the exiled. But he is met with a wall of contempt that he must find the strength to break down…

Martinů’s Greek Passion, performed here in the original London version, is a unique and powerfully resonant opera. A spectacular soundscape of vast choral and orchestral forces combines with shocking drama that unfolds in cinematic style. It is not to be missed.
