English Touring Opera presents a new production of Tippett's haunting pacifist opera, set during the fall of Troy.
Tippett's second opera is a powerful expression of the composer's deeply held pacifism. It was first performed at the 1962 Coventry Festival, commemorating the consecration of the new cathedral and remembering the tremendous global human loss of World War II.
