Waterperry Opera Festival 2022
Composed by Leoš Janáček
Poems by Ozev Kalda

Janáček’s song-cycle, The Diary of One Who Disappeared, tells the story of a young man who becomes infatuated with an elusive woman, eventually throwing his life away to follow her.
Performed in English, this staged production is directed by Guy Withers (Peter and the Wolf) and musically directed by Ashley Beauchamp (Mansfield Park, Hansel and Gretel). This passionate and dark song-cycle carries the audiences on a journey through the highs and lows of love’s emotions.
For an extended evening, this production pairs perfectly with Wagner at Twilight, a concert of Siegfried-Idyll and Wesendonck Lieder performed at 8:30pm in the gardens after this performance.
