About This Event

Could there be two more arresting openings in all music than the restless rapture of Wagner’s operatic lovers and the ominous growls that herald Stravinsky’s century-old ballet score to a Russian folk-tale? They share with Thomas Larcher’s work a compressed energy and ravishing orchestral colours.

A Aldeburgh Festival debut for Karina Canellakis and a return for Sarah Tynan, who after her Les Illuminations in Struan Leslie’s 2016 Aldeburgh circus fantasy, sings a very different Britten cycle.

From the early months of a fruitful and prolific collaboration with WH Auden, 'Our Hunting Fathers' is a gripping allegory, poet and composer attuned to nature’s savagery and the ominous world events of the late 1930s.
