Event information

Peter Grimes
Benjamin Britten's masterpiece is set in a claustrophobic seaside town on England's windswept coast, and is some of the most powerful and theatrical music written for the operatic stage.

This concert version of Benjamin Britten’s great opera is conducted by BFO Music Director Edward Gardner, and the title role is sung by tenor Stuart Skelton, whose interpretation of the role is recognised as peerless: "Surely now the Grimes of our day. Not to be missed on stage," wrote the Sunday Times.

Peter Grimes is a true psychological thriller, painting a vivid portrait of a small community's descent into suspicion, gossip and bullying in the face of a tragedy. What has happened to fisherman Peter Grimes's missing apprentice? What part has Grimes, always the town's outsider, played in the boy's disappearance? As mistrust grows, Grimes's life spirals into downfall with dramatic consequences.
