Based on the novel by Herman Melville, Billy Budd is a story of injustice set in the tense and stifling atmosphere on board a British man of war during the Napoleonic wars. The all male cast is powerfully directed by Michael Grandage with Jacques Imbrailo in the title role.
2013 marks the centenary of the birth of Benjamin Britten, and Glyndebourne is proud to present
Billy Budd (recorded live in 2010) in cinemas and online from 19 August 2013.
