"Benjamin Britten is simply this most prolific and the most important British composer since Purcell..." (Opera, The Rough Guide)

Peter Grimes encapsulates many of the themes that preoccupy Britten's dramatic works ¡V the vulnerability of innocence, the abuse of power and the susceptibility of the outsider to the pressures of society.

Not since Peter Pears recording, with Britten, at Covent Garden have we been treated to a Grimes of such intelligence and complexity.

Director Tim Albery approaches this music theatre with great sensitivity, allowing both the music and the vocal line their individual space to unfold. David Atherton and the orchestra of the ENO, clearly understand how to drive the music's expressive power.
