Peter Grimes - Benjamin Britten

Peter Grimes is an opera by Benjamin Britten, with a libretto adapted by Montagu Slater from the narrative poem, "Peter Grimes," in George Crabbe's book The Borough. The "borough" of the opera is a fictional village which shares some similarities with Crabbe's, and later Britten's, own home of Aldeburgh, a town on England's east coast.

It was first performed at Sadler's Wells in London on 7 June 1945, conducted by Reginald Goodall, and was the first of Britten's operas to be a critical and popular success. It is still widely performed, both in the UK and internationally, and is considered part of the standard repertoire. In addition, the Four Sea Interludes were published separately (as Op. 33a) and are frequently performed as an orchestral suite.

This story of an outsider who suffers from the pressures of society and ultimately breaks him. Peter Grimes, located in the fishing environment in the East of England, is a timeless parable about persecution, emotional loneliness and the attempt to gain a place in society. The production, directed by Christine Mielitz tells this straightforward and clear, showing the tortured soul of the title character in a cold atmosphere. Following the resumption of Billy Budd in 2011, another of his major operas is at the Vienna State Opera now rehearsed - and is also a contribution to the Britten-2013!
