English National Opera’s Peter Grimes

Sung in English (with English subtitles).  Running Time: 3 hours and 10 minutes (with two intermissions)

The bleak, enclosed world of a fishing village provides the backdrop for the story of fisherman Peter Grimes and his uneasy relationship with the other inhabitants. Following the death of Grimes’ apprentice, the community presumes Grimes to be guilty. Although he is cleared of any blame, the villagers no longer trust him, and when his new apprentice accidentally falls to his death, Grimes spirals toward a tragic breakdown. The most significant British opera in more than two centuries, Benjamin Britten’s Peter Grimes is a work of visceral and sustained beauty, notable for the orchestral interludes that depict the sea in different moods. English National Opera’s music director, Edward Gardner, conducts the electrifying score, with Stuart Skelton heading an outstanding cast in the title role.
