Two of Australia's finest artists bring to life Lord Tennyson's epic poem of love, loss and sacrifice, in Richard Strauss' dramatic and moving setting to music.

Enoch Arden

Presented by Adelaide Festival Centre


The great Romantic poet Alfred Lord Tennyson’s epic poem Enoch Arden set to music by German composer Richard Strauss.
