King Roger
by Szymanowski

King Roger


Venue: The Forum Studio Theatre

Elemental Opera presents Karol Szymanowski's masterwork King Roger in a new English translation by Andrzej Duszenko. Though rarely staged, this stunningly beautiful work is a culmination of Szymanowski's late Romanticism ideals and has often been called the 'Polish Salome.' The story is a heady mix of Christian piety battling with Pagan revelry, combined with Romantic Orientalism and early 20th century exoticism.

The Guardian has called ElOp's recent Britten performances 'fiery and commanding', and as one of Britain's newest opera companies, ElOp is committed to bring drama and passion to every production. Be part of the catalyst...
