Moses und Aron

 24 May 2014 at  

Moses und Aron

Millennium Centre, Cardiff
Cardiff Bay, Cardiff, Wales
United Kingdom

WNO

Imagine you’ve been told the most important thing man has ever been told. What you have been told will change the world and save mankind. You must now share what you have heard, you are God’s spokesperson on earth. Imagine, however, that you are overcome with despair that you find yourself unable to find the right words to communicate God’s will. This is Moses’ tragedy in Moses und Aron.

It is impossible not to listen to Schoenberg’s ‘fragmentary masterpiece’ and not be stunned by his achievement. Moses und Aron reaches to the outer limits of what opera was capable of in the last century. It’s a sound so unique, so urgent that you might be forgiven for thinking that it has come down from heaven itself.

Welsh National Opera is proud to stage this rarely performed opera in Sergio Morabito and Jossi Wieler’s highly charged production. Moses und Aron is a huge undertaking for both performers and audiences but the rewards will be extraordinary.

Performances until 26th July
