Event Description

Kommilitonen! is WNO’s Youth Opera production for 2016. It is a contemporary opera for young people about young people, by composer Peter Maxwell Davies and with a libretto by David Pountney.

The opera, which has 28 scenes, intertwines three stories of student revolution in the 20th century - the Chinese Cultural Revolution; the Civil Rights Movement in the USA; and the White Rose movement in Germany during WWII. The three stories come together at the end of the opera, locating the action between the present and the past, and evoking the tyranny of the three historic political systems that the opera explores.

Kommilitonen! will be a promenade performance to be staged at Memo Arts Centre in Barry between 28 - 30 July 2016. This is the first time WNO has worked with the Memo and we are excited to collaborate with them on this new project. - See more at: https://www.wno.org.uk/kommilitonen!#sthash.WosbE2Fw.dpuf
