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+ More details
