London Armenian Opera

Fire Ring

Directed by: Seta White

In a bloody civil war, a rebel girl fighting for the revolutionary army captures an Army Officer. Their opposing views have left millions dead. Now, left alone on an island, they must decide whether to continue the battle for their political ideals, or yield to their brewing sexual desires.

For two nights only at Grimeborn 2016, London Armenian Opera present the UK premiere of Avet Terterian‘s 1967 masterpiece, Fire Ring.

Terterian, highly respected in his adopted Germany, unashamedly immersed his work in Western, progressive concepts whilst retaining his distinctive, Armenian voice. In this intense psychological opera he lays bare the volatility of human beings in love and war.

Following their critically-acclaimed production of Davit Bek, LAO’s artistic director Aris Nadirian reunites with director Seta White. The acclaimed young soprano Tereza Gevorgyan leads a dynamic cast.

Performed in Armenian with English surtitles.
