Barcode: 5050467879027

Composer: Benjamin Britten
Other participants: Patricia Johnson, Alan Opie, Felicity Palmer, Jean Rigby, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Glyndebourne Chorus

Benjamin Britten's comic opera which is gently laced with moments of face, is a jocular parody on life in East Suffolk at the turn of the 20th century. It is a quaint, nostalgic journey to a bygone England and the journey has come full circle back to Glyndebourne where this piece was premiered in 1947. The ensuing antics are brilliantly characterised by a strong British cast in this production, which is infused with freshness and limitless charm.
