Product description

Product Description

Benjamin Britten’s powerful opera Peter Grimes is considered to be one of the masterpieces of the 20th century. In this famous production by Elijah Moshinsky for The Royal Opera, filmed in 1981, Canadian tenor Jon Vickers stars as the complex and misunderstood fisherman, with Heather Harper as Ellen Orford and Norman Bailey as Bulstrode. The conductor is Sir Colin Davis, who worked for several years with the cast of this production, resulting in a masterly interweaving of characters in this gripping drama.

Elijah Moshinsky’s production for The Royal Opera was inspired by early Victorian photographs taken of the Suffolk coast and presents his action on a sparse stage, evocatively lit and dominated by strong performances. Canadian tenor Jon Vickers is one of the greatest Grimes of all. This is a towering performance, rough and terrifying, yet beautifully sung in the lyrical passages.

Review

Heather Harper as Ellen Orford is … "in magnificent voice" -- Gramophone

Jon Vickers as Grimes is … "One of the most riveting operatic impersonations of our day" -- Financial Times
