Glyndebourne has a proud association with the operas of Benjamin

Britten, however until 2010 had never staged Billy Budd. The all-male

opera with a libretto co-written by EM Forster, is based on the battle

between pure good and blind evil, and is set on a British man-'o-war ship.

Michael Grandage, Artistic Director of the Donmar Warehouse, chose

this work to make his long-awaited operatic debut. Sir Mark Elder

returned to conduct the production, marking the 100th opera production

in his illustrious career.
