Once called the greatest comic opera of the 20th century, Benjamin Britten’s Albert Herring weaves the tale of small town politics and one young man’s quest to escape from under his mother’s thumb and see the world. The light-hearted tale’s comic text is set against Britten’s musically complex and rich score. Keep your ears open between laughs to catch the musical quotes and references to other operas Britten has scattered throughout the work.
Ticket holders may attend a Pre-Opera Talk which begins one hour before the performance in Scott Commons.
