This story of an alienated fisherman who battles inner demons and the loss of his apprentices, Peter Grimes was the work that established Benjamin Britten as a major musical force when it was first performed in 1945. It is now universally acknowledged as one of the twentieth century’s finest operas. In this performance Canadian tenor Jon Vickers - internationally acclaimed for his portrayal of Grimes - heads a cast that gives vivid life to this masterpiece.

Of Jon Vickers, The Times said, “...immensely potent, marvelously sung and impersonated...a great tragic study.”
