Sarah Redgwick returns to Garsington Opera

Sarah Redgwick returns to Garsington Opera as Mrs Morrell in Silver Birch by Roxanna Panufnik.

This exciting new commission, with a libretto from writer Jessica Duchen, is a celebration of music, drama, poetry and dance and brings together professional singers with members of the local community. The production is directed by Karen Gillingham and is conducted by Douglas Boyd.

Inspired by the timeless themes of war and relationships affected by it, the opera draws upon Siegfried Sassoon’s poems and the testimony of a British soldier, who served recently in Iraq, to illustrate the human tragedies of conflicts past and present.
