British composer Benjamin Britten described his opera Peter Grimes as “…a subject very close to my heart, the struggle of the individual against the masses. The more vicious the society, the more vicious the individual.” Set in a drab fishing village, Peter Grimes tells the story of a man accused by his neighbors of committing unspeakable crimes, and the question of whether those accusations and their consequences are just. Britten’s incredible score includes the Four Sea Interludes, instrumental music between scenes that perfectly expresses the mystery and pain at the heart of this opera. Starring John Graham-Hall, Susan Gritton, Christopher Purves and Felicity Palmer, with conductor Robin Ticciati in his debut at La Scala.
