Tides of tragedy, a sea of struggle

Peter Grimes is a tale of isolation and prejudice. Haunted by rumours and suspicion, a fisherman finds himself grappling with inner demons as the local community turns against him. But what really happened to his apprentice? Uncover the mysteries of a coastal village, where the sea whispers secrets and everyone thinks they know your business, as tragedy unfolds against the ominous backdrop of powerful, melodic waves.  

Britten’s iconic opera, rich with dramatic choruses, enthralling solos and the famous Sea Interludes, comes to life in this new production from WNO, as the forces of nature collide with the harshness of human behaviour. Dive into a turbulent sea and a storm of emotions for a performance that lingers on way after the final note.   

Conductor Tomáš Hanus
