Theatr Colwyn: In Parenthesis

November 22, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

Encore screening

In Parenthesis is a new opera by the Welsh National Opera.

This year we commemorate the century 100 years since the beginning of the Battle of the Somme, one of the bloodiest of the First World War, which lasted some five months and left over one million dead and wounded on all sides.

One of the men caught up in the Battle was David Jones, a soldier with the Royal Welch Fusiliers. Jones would go on to document his experiences in the extraordinary poem ‘In Parenthesis’, published in 1937. A century after the Great War, the Welsh National Opera turned it into an opera.

The screenings will feature introductory commentary from WNO Nicholas John Dramaturg, Sophie Rashbrook.
