Peter Grimes, Benjamin Britten’s first full-scale opera, is quite simply, a masterpiece: an opera of immense dramatic force communicated through powerful and evocative music. Its story explores themes of alienation and the fate of the antihero by pitting a conflicted dreamer against a village that rejects and persecutes him. Like many other great operas it is a tragedy, yet audiences find it uniquely satisfying due to the haunting beauty of its music and its insight into the human psyche.
