BENJAMIN BRITTEN

Billy Budd

Britten’s masterful operatic take on Melville’s tale of the clash between good and evil returns to the Met in John Dexter’s classic production. Baritone Joshua Hopkins stars as the innocent Billy Budd, wrongly accused of mutiny by the malevolent master-at-arms Claggart, performed by bass Matthew Rose. Star tenor Matthew Polenzani is Captain Vere, the honest commander forced to decide Billy’s fate. Conductor Simone Young leads the cast.
