Billy Budd /

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.
