          Benedict Nelson, playing the title role in Billy Budd, gives Kirsten O'Brien a taste of the opera's music during the second week of rehearsals when he sings the aria 'Billy in the Darbies' accompanied by piano. About the production ENO continues to refresh its Britten repertoire with this new production by the team behind ENO’s award-winning Peter Grimes. A metaphysical battle between good and evil fought out aboard a British man-o'-war, Britten’s richly orchestrated all-male opera was originally commissioned for the 1951 Festival of Britain and is considered to be one of the composer’s finest works. Starring Benedict Nelson (a ‘standout’ Demetrius in 2011’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream) as Billy, Matthew Rose as Claggart, the malevolent master-at-arms, and Kim Begley as Vere, the morally conflicted captain, this new staging reunites the award-winning director-conductor partnership of David Alden and Edward Gardner from 2009’s Peter Grimes. Performances June 18, 23, 27, & July 3, 5 at 7pm | June 30 at 6pm | July 8 at 3pm 7 performances. Running time: 2hrs 55mins

            Billy Budd by Benjamin Britten recorded at the 2010 Glyndebourne Festival Conductor Sir Mark Elder Cast John Mark Ainsley, Jacques Imbrailo, Phillip Ens London Philharmonic Orchestra Based on Herman Melville's novella of naval life in the late 18th century, Billy Budd is a gripping reflection on good and evil, innocence and corruption. Director Michael Grandage scrupulously recreates the claustrophobic environment about HMS Indomitable, the setting for fatal tensions between the young sailor Billy Budd, the thoughtful Captain Vere and the malevolent master at arms John Claggart. 3 CDs including libretto available from Glyndebourne glyndebourne.com/product/britten-benjamin-billy-budd-0

                http://www.opera.se/forestallningar/billy-budd-2013-2014/ The innocent must be destroyed. Swedish premiere for Britten's heart-rending drama Billy Budd. Peter Mattei is making a special appearance for us in the title role. We are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the birth of Benjamin Britten - England's most prominent opera composer - with a Swedish premiere of his heart-rending drama Billy Budd from 1952, one of Britten's few operas for a symphony orchestra. It is a tale of a human's right to rebel, and psychological power struggles within a male-dominated heirarchy – Billy Budd only has roles for men. In the original libretto, Billy Budd takes place on a ship. Handsome young sailor Billy arouses everyone's sympathies – as well as desire in some cases – and is falsely accused of mutiny. He is in a weak position, partly because of his stammer which makes it hard for him to express himself when agitated. He cannot adequately defend himself, and is sentenced to death. Director Richard Jones has set the story in an English boarding school, with its tendency for bullying and underlying homophobia. The production comes from the Frankfurt Opera, where it was highly acclaimed. Richard Jones' Assistant Director Katharina Thoma will be responsible for our production. As in Frankfurt, Billy Budd will be played by one of the most dazzling international opera stars – baritone and Court Singer (Hovsångare) Peter Mattei, who is returning to our opera house after an absence of 13 years. The upright Captain Vere's role (originally written for Britten's life partner, tenor Peter Pears) will be played by Mathias Zachariassen. Billy's nemesis, Master-at-arms John Claggart, is interpreted alternately by bass Clive Bayley from the original production and The Göteborg Opera's own Mats Almgren. Experienced Britten conductor, Jan Latham-Koenig, most recently made a special appearance with us in Thaïs.
