Billy Budd : opera in four acts, op. 50

Herman Melville's gripping story of good and evil, set on an 18th-century British warship, inspired one of Britten's most brilliant operas. Richard Stillwell is Billy, the young sailor with a stammer and a pure heart whose goodness arouses the hatred of Claggart (James Morris). When Claggart falsely accuses Billy of attempting to incite mutiny, Billy strikes and accidentally kills him. Captain Vere (sung by Peter Pears, Britten's partner and creator of the role, in his last Met performance) has no choice but to have Billy hanged for murder, even though Claggart's changes are false. Peter Glossop is Mr. Redburn and Raymond Leppard conducts.

  • "Benjamin Britten's gripping retelling of Herman Melville's tale of the clash between good and evil is superbly brought to life by the magnificent conducting of Charles Mackerras and this remarkable cast. Thomas Hampson is the innocent Billy Budd, falsely accused of mutiny by the evil master-at-arm Claggart (James Morris). When Billy involuntarily strikes and kills him, Captain Vere (Graham Clark) orders Billy hanged, though he knows it was an accident. With Alan Held as Mr. Redburn."@en
