Programme Note
Lennox Berkeley Ruth (1956),
SYNOPSIS

Naomi, her daughter-in-law and Ruth are returning to Judah. The emotional interplay amongst the three principals is uncomplicated and, with the exception of the Judean
people’s burst of hostility towards Ruth, the general mood is tender, ending with Boaz’s acceptance of Ruth’s offer of marriage. The chorus plays a prominent role throughout the
opera, especially in harvest celebrations.
