Peter Grimes on Aldeburgh Beach

Benjamin Britten's masterpiece "Peter Grimes on Aldeburgh Beach" is performed outdoors in the English coastal town that Britten called home, and which inspired the opera's setting. Based on George Crabbe’s 1810 poem "The Borough", Britten’s powerful evocation of the North Sea in all its moods has become the most popular opera of post-war Britain.
