Based on Leo Tolstoy’s novel, the narrative of War and Peace follows the tribulations of Russian society as Napoleon edges closer to the country’s borders. The spirited Natasha and her betrothed Andrei find their young love is challenged by temptation, while Pierre, an idealistic nobleman, wants to change Russian life for the better. As their fates intertwine during the 1812 invasion they find their stories unfold during a time when Russian lives would change forever.

David Pountney’s new production will be as ambitious and epic in scale as the novel itself. The huge set, video projections and stunning costumes by Marie-Jeanne Lecca portray the grandeur of Russian society in the 1800s. WNO Music Director Tomáš Hanus will conduct a unique performing version of the score, based on Katya Emrolaeva and Rita McAllister’s new critical edition of Prokofiev’s original, complete with opulent dances and arias, and stirring melodies.
_________________________________________________

Yn seiliedig ar nofel Leo Tolstoy, mae naratif War and Peace yn dilyn trallodion cymdeithas Rwsia wrth i Napoleon agosáu at ffiniau'r wlad. Maer Natasha afieithus a'i dyweddi Andrei yn gweld eu cariad ifanc yn cael ei herio gan demtasiwn, tra bod Pierre, bonheddwr idealistig eisiau newid bywyd yn Rwsia er gwell. Wrth i dynged y tri ymblethu yn ystod ymosodiad 1812, maen nhw'n darganfod bod eu straeon yn datblygu yn ystod cyfnod pan fyddai bywyd yn Rwsia yn newid am byth.

Mae cynhyrchiad newydd David Pountney yr un mor uchelgeisiol ac ar raddfa mor epig â’r nofel ei hun. Gyda set enfawr, tafluniadau fideo a’r gwisgoedd trawiadol gan Marie-Jeanne Lecca yn portreadu urddas cymdeithas Rwsia yn yr 1800au. Bydd Cyfarwyddwr Cerddoriaeth WNO Tomáš Hanus yn arwain fersiwn unigryw o'r sgôr, yn seiliedig ar argraffiad newydd gan Katya Emrolaeva ac Rita McAllister o waith gwreiddiol Prokofiev, gyda dawnsiau ac ariâu gwych, ac alawon cyffrous.
