As Europe slipped towards Fascism, Michael Tippett felt solidarity with the downtrodden. Then, in 1938,a young Polish Jew, whose parents had been deported by the Nazis, shot a German diplomat in Paris. Tippett had the central figure for his ?oratorio of contemplation', A Child of Our Time - inspired by Bach's Passions, Handel's Messiah and American spirituals. Mark Wigglesworth also explores the theme of parent-child relationships in the final scene of Wagner's opera Die Walk?re, culminating in Wotan's poignant farewell to his daughter.
