Vaughan Williams The Pilgrim’s Progress (A Morality) 132'
A gripping story, moving words, dramatic imagery: The Pilgrim’s Progress has it all. Vaughan Williams’ incredible opera brings the diverse characters and settings to life – Vanity Fair, the Delectable Mountains, the Celestial City. Featuring a host of characters that Pilgrim encounters on his journey, the work is very rarely performed, so this is a wonderful opportunity to hear a masterpiece from one of England’s best-loved composers. This semistaged joint production with British Youth Opera sees the festival’s Youth Choir take on the role of operatic chorus, and is conducted by Festival Youth Choir alumna Charlotte Corderoy.
