This version of the opera entitled OWEN WINGRAVE was performed under the tutelage of director Margaret Williams. The story has been updated somewhat, and Williams chose to shoot on location, but none of the original production's power and poise has been lost. Opera fans should find much to love here.
Description by Kultur Films:
Thirty years after the original broadcast, Owen Wingrave returned to the small screen in a new version by the highly-regarded music and arts director Margaret Williams, who reveals through a vivid film vocabulary the intensity of the drama and its passionate realization in Britten's music. Shot entirely on location, the story is updated from Edwardian times to the 1950s, establishing a connection with World War II.
