Michael Tippett’s King Priam is a magnificent opera about character and destiny, about the last days of the ancient Greek city of Troy.
The city is under siege, and the old King recounts the events leading up to the war, waiting for his own death. All the familiar characters and stories – Hector and Achilles, Paris, Helen and the gods – are brought to life in this memorable meditation on the futility of war.
Brilliant, insightful and musically gripping, King Priam is a prime example of British opera at its best.
