Tuesday Opera – Albert Herring- Benjamin Britten – Glyndebourne Festival Opera


Benjamin Britten’s comic opera which is gently laced with moments of farce, is a jocular parody on life in East Suffolk at the turn of the 20th century. It is a quaint, nostalgic journey to a bygone England and the journey has come full circle back to Glyndebourne where this piece was premiered in 1947. The ensuing antics are brilliantly characterised by a strong British cast in this production, which is infused with freshness and limitless charm.
