“If I should die, think only this of me; that there's some corner of a foreign field that is forever England..." (Rupert Brook)

A Foreign Field is a true story of three British soldiers caught behind enemy lines in France during World War 1, and their impact on a family who offer to help them survive. The opera paints a picture of the poignant and tragic way in which war takes its toll of people, changing them in their fight for personal survival and altering their way of life. In that way it speaks for all wars, past and present.
‘What cannot be denied is the clarity with which this compelling story is dramatised, nor the craftsmanship that has gone into Wetherell’s score...there is an integrity and nobility about its understated melancholy and bittersweet lyricism.' The Times
Directed by John Telfer (BBC The Archers), with full orchestra conducted by Ben England (Bristol Music Trust)
