Benjamin Britten's operas

It is fitting that Benjamin Britten once described opera as ‘the most exciting of musical forms’, as he almost single-handedly revived the English operatic tradition, leaving a legacy that surely represents one of the most important contributions to 20th-century opera.

This set features some of Britten’s most powerful stage works, from the strikingly original ‘choral operetta’ Paul Bunyan, through the compelling musical and psychological drama of Peter Grimes and The Turn of the Screw, to the spellbinding A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
