Unfriended. Unfollowed. Unravelling. English National Opera presents Benjamin Britten’s Peter Grimes.
Featuring some of the most powerful and evocative opera music ever written, Benjamin Britten’s Peter Grimes paints a vivid picture of a small community’s transformation into a hateful mob in the face of a local tragedy.
Part-psychological thriller and part-morality play, Peter Grimes is an elegantly simple story. Beautifully expressed musically, about ever-present forces of fear, suspicion and intolerance. Forces, that if left unchecked, repress our differences and drive us apart as individuals and communities.
The production is conducted by Martyn Brabbins, ENO’s Director of Music, and directed by longstanding ENO collaborator, David Alden. It features Gwyn Hughes Jones in the title role with former Harewood Artists, Elizabeth Llewellyn (as Ellen Orford), Alex Otterburn (Ned Keene) and, John Findon (Bob Boles).
