Opera on the Couch Event
Music by Benjamin Britten
Sung in English with English supertitles
Meet Billy. He’s handsome, honest and good. He’s also doomed.
When young Billy is pressed into naval service, the recruit's youth and innocence arouse devotion from the crew. But one commanding officer's dark desires threaten to end Billy's career — for good. Britten's masterpiece, based on the novella by Herman Melville, returns in a critically acclaimed production from Tony Award-winning director Michael Grandage.
