English National Opera’s New Production of Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem

Thursday, November 15th, 2018

English National Opera’s new production of Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem may be the work’s first full staging in the UK, but it’s part of this larger trend. The lineage of Daniel Kramer’s show is clear, growing out of Passion stagings by Jonathan Miller, Peter Sellars and Katie Mitchell, Claus Guth’s Messiah, Calixto Bieito’s Verdi and War Requiems, and Derek Jarman’s 1989 film adaptation of the latter.
