From the House of the Dead archiveTelling the story of the inmates of a Siberian prison, the opera reflects their feelings of pain, oppression and injustice as each recount why they ended up in jail. Their gloom is eased as they painstakingly nurse an eagle back to health, which comes to symbolize both Russia and the notion of freedom. Sung in English, with English and Welsh surtitles. Unfinished at the time of Janacek's death, this will be the first time that the opera will be performed in a version that is as close as possible to what Janacek intended
Performers Alan Oke (Skuratov), Robert Hayward (The Commandant), Mark Le Brocq (Filka Morozov), Adrian Thompson (Shapkin).
Author Leos Janacek. Book by Dostoyevsky. Company Welsh National Opera. Director Tomas Hanus. Music John Tyrrell (musicologist - with performance suggestions by Charles Mackerras).
