A mother, haunted by suffering, visits her son, imprisoned for his political beliefs. The prisoner desperately tries to hang onto faith and hope, and believes the gaoler offers the prospect of a life of happiness and children beyond the prison walls. The freedom offered by his 'brother' is an illusion, and hope an unexpected torture. First performed in 1949. In Summer 2019, Welsh National Opera addresses the issues of justice, freedom and human rights through a season of operas, debates, discussions, exhibitions and digital projects. At the heart of their FREEDOM Season are four semi-staged operas across three evenings in the Donald Gordon Theatre and one fully-staged opera in the Weston Studio.

Music Dallapiccola. Lyrics Dallapiccola (after de I'Isle-Adam). Company Welsh National Opera.
