About the Author

Benjamin Britten (1913-76) was an English composer, conductor and pianist. He showed prodigious talent from an early age and first came to public attention with the a cappella choral work A Boy Was Born. He leapt to international fame with his opera Peter Grimes in 1945. This was followed by eight other major operas, including Billy Budd (1951), A Mid- summer's Night Dream (1960) and Death in Venice (1973), as well as other orchestral, choral and chamber works, which established his reputation as one of the greatest composers of the twentieth century.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Filippo Secondo (aka AB) on 27 Sept. 2013
Format: Paperback
Having been misled by Overture's superb 'Idomeneo' guide (never issued as an ENO title), I ordered this one without checking the 'Look Inside' feature and was entirely disappointed by the cheap reproduction quality: the script is barely legible, and the photos - well, no comment! This also applying to the other reproductions (except those whose texts have been revised by Overture), I suggest buying the original Calder publications instead, even if the Marketplace's asking prices are high.
