Britten: Peter Grimes


  • Great Hall, Dartington Totnes Devon (map)

Ellen performs the role of Niece 1 in Britten's Peter Grimes at Dartington with Paul Nilon as Peter Grimes.

Set in a small fishing community on the English coast, this astounding opera is an utterly absorbing, emotionally compelling experience; it caused a sensation at its premiere in 1945. Britten’s atmospheric music evokes the power and cruelty of the sea, vividly portraying the human drama unfolding around the outsider Peter Grimes.
