About This Performance

Britten 100/LA

One of music’s greatest anti-war statements, Britten’s masterpiece poignantly combines the moving WWI poetry of Wilfred Owen with the Catholic Mass for the Dead. At the top of his score, Britten inscribed Owen’s preface: “My subject is War, and the pity of War. The poetry is in the pity. All a poet can do is warn.”

Come for:

A musically inspired, philosophically probing, intellectually inventive tour de force of the creative spirit, honoring the composer’s 100th birthday anniversary.

And more:

Britten master and LA Opera Music Director James Conlon leads an array of L.A.’s finest youth ensembles.

Programs, artists, dates, prices and availability subject to change.
