5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece from Benjamin Britten beautifully delivered by Glyndebourne, 2 Dec 2013
This review is from: Britten: Billy Budd (Audio CD)
The tense and stifling atmosphere on board a British man of war during the Napoleonic wars, with discipline brutally enforced and danger of attack ever present, is powerfully evoked in this recording.

Amongst the all male chorus are tender and touching musical moments with lead role Jacques Imbrailo at the forefront of delivery. The shining goodness embodied in the character of Billy, is not enough to save him but the Glyndebourne recording is his legacy.
