Synopsis

Performance of Igor Stravinsky's only opera written to an English text. Inspired by English artist William Hogarth's series of engravings detailing the decline of an 18th-century libertine, it tells the tale of a well-meaning but weak country lad, lured from his faithful sweetheart to the fleshpots of a corrupt London, and eventual madness.
