  • "John Dexter's brilliant production of Britten's searing opera stars Dwayne Croft in the title role of the handsome young sailor whose kindness and innocence cause his downfall. The great James Morris is Claggart, master-at-arms on the 18th-century warship Indomitable, who falsely accuses Billy of inciting a mutiny. Philip Langridge sings Captain Vere, the honest commander who knows that Billy is innocent but finds himself unable to save him. Steuart Bedford, Britten's close collaborator during the last years of the composer's life, is on the podium."@en

  • "Summary: Britten's 2-act opera of persecution and injustice aboard a British man o' war in 1797."
  • "Benjamin Brittens Oper "Billy Budd" erzählt von der dramatischen Beziehung des jungen, stotternden Matrosen Billy zu seinem Kapitän Vere: Auf einem britischen Kriegsschiff in der Zeit der Napoleonischen Kriege gerät der zwangsrekrutierte Billy in eine Intrige und erschlägt, da er stottert und sich nicht anders zu verteidigen weiss, den Waffenmeister Claggart, der ihm vorgeworfen hat, eine Meuterei zu planen. Der Kapitän muss dafür die Todesstrafe verhängen, in dem Wissen, damit einen Schuldlosen ans Messer zu liefern. Kapitän Vere wird darüber nie hinwegkommen, in diesem Moment "sein Herz dem Gesetz geopfert" zu haben. Benjamin Brittens dramatische Seefahrer-Oper "Billy Budd" nach Herman Melvilles ("Moby Dick") gleichnamiger Novelle hat an der Wiener Staatsoper alle Erwartungen übertroffen. Sämtliche Vorstellungen waren ausverkauft und vom Publikum bejubelt."
  • "Nüchtern wie Willy Deckers Regie ist auch das Bühnenbild von Wolfgang Gussmann. Neil Shicoff verleiht dem Kapitän das nötige Charisma - im Herzen ein Philosoph, in der Stunde der Wahrheit ein Mann der Tat. Bo Skovhus brilliert als naiver Billy, Eric Halfvarson ist ein diabolisch intriganter Waffenmeister Claggart. Grosse Anerkennung erhielt auch Dirigent Donald Runnicles, der mit grosser Orchesterbesetzung eine ideale Interpretation lieferte."
  • "An opera in two acts which tells of the sadism and injustice aboard a British man-of-war."@en
  • "L'action se déroule, en 1797, à bord d'un vaisseau de la Royal Navy, l'Indomptable. Le capitaine de l'Indomptable, Edward F. Vere, raconte l'intrigue comme une série de réminiscences. Un jeune navigateur, Billy Budd, décide de s'enrôler dans la marine. Il est bientôt en proie aux tracasseries du maître d'armes Claggart qui le pousse à se mutiner. Claggart accuse ensuite Billy de trahison et le dénonce au capitaine Vere. Paralysé par son bégaiement, Billy, furieux, se jette sur Claggart et, malencontreusement, le tue. Vere n'ignore pas la bonne foi de Billy mais ne parvient pas à le sauver de la condamnation à mort. Billy est donc pendu devant tout l'équipage. L'opéra ne comporte aucun rôle féminin."
  • "Based on Herman Melville's novella of naval life in the late 18th century, Benjamin Britten's Billy Budd is a gripping reflection on good and evil, innocence and corruption. Director Michael Grandage scrupulously recreates the claustrophobic environment aboard HMS Indomitable, the setting for fatal tensions between the young sailor Billy Budd, the thoughtful Captain Vere and the malevolent master-at-arms John Claggart."@en
