Karol Szymanowski’s tragic masterpiece, Król Roger (King Roger) powerfully presents the dilemmas of culture versus nature and man versus beast as told through the stormy life of King Roger. Antonio Pappano conducts Szymanowksi’s score whose opulence contrasts achingly with the darkening skies of this morality tale in Kasper Holten’s first production since becoming director of the Royal Opera House. With inspired performances led by the fine Mariusz Kwiecien, who has made the title role a signature one in his career along with Georgia Jarman in her Royal Opera debut as Roger’s loving queen Roxana. Sung in Polish with English, French, German, Japanese and Korean subtitles, this production is further distinguished by marking the return of this opera to the London stage after a 40 year absence along with its innovative stage, lighting and video design that further enhances the immersiveness of this tale.
