War and Peace

Biography

Based on Leo Tolstoy’s novel, the narrative of War and Peace follows the tribulations of Russian society as Napoleon edges closer to the country’s borders.

The spirited Natasha and her betrothed Andrei find their young love is challenged by temptation, while Pierre, an idealistic nobleman, wants to change Russian life for the better. As their fates intertwine during the 1812 invasion they find their stories unfold during a time when Russian lives would change forever.

David Pountney’s new production will be as ambitious and epic in scale as the novel itself. The huge set, video projections and stunning costumes by Marie-Jeanne Lecca portray the grandeur of Russian society in the 1800s. WNO Music Director Tomáš Hanus will conduct a unique performing version of the score, based on Katya Ermolaeva and Rita McAllister’s new critical edition of Prokofiev’s original, complete with opulent dances and arias, and stirring melodies.
