Britten: Peter Grimes (Ticciati)
Recorded live at Teatro alla Scala, Milan, May 2012
Running Time: c.154 mins
Content Type: Movie
The Italian and international press were unanimous in their praise for Peter Grimes at La Scala, which revived the tradition of Britten's operas on the lyric stages of Italy. A top british cast was marshalled by the baton of Robin Ticciati. Richard Jones's production focuses on the fisherman as the outsider in a brutal and brutalised 1980s society, cut off by mutual suspicion and misunderstanding: an unforgettable production of a 20th-century operatic masterpiece that never loses its power.
Filmed in High Definition and true Surround Sound.
Interviews with Robin Ticciati, John graham-Hall, Sarah Fahie and Richard Jones.
