Following Deborah Warner’s award winning production of Billy Budd in 2019, The Royal Opera continues its Benjamin Britten series with her new production of Peter Grimes, which had its premiere in Madrid in April 2021. Warner’s sympathetic approach to Britten’s sombre parable foregrounds the complexity of Peter Grimes himself and the tragic conflict between the group and the individual.
Mark Elder conducts a cast that includes British singers Allan Clayton, Bryn Terfel and John Tomlinson, alongside Maria Bengtsson and former Jette Parker Young Artist Jacques Imbrailo.
