Commissioned by the BBC in 1966 and based on the Henry James short story of the same name, this two act opera was completed for television by Benjamin Britten in August of 1970. Owen Wingrave is a pacifist born into a renowned military family. As he struggles to keep the affection of his would-be bride, he must face disapproval from his family over his beliefs and prove his inner strength - even if it leads to his own mysterious end. Sung in English with supertitles.
