Oliver Rudland: Pincher Martin (first performance)

Faust Ensemble
Mark Austin, conductor

Set during World War II, Pincher Martin, a new opera by Oliver Rudland, based on the novel by William Golding, is an existential re-telling of the 'Don Giovanni' fable. On a lonely islet in the middle of the Atlantic, a stranded naval officer is forced to re-live events from his ruthlessly selfish past. Through his memories and hallucinations, we learn of the terrifying actions which led him to this fateful pass. Using specially-filmed and original archival footage, the opera's innovative cinematic backdrop utterly immerses the audience in Pincher Martin's nightmarish world.

Includes a first-night introductory talk by Roger Scruton.
