I do love this opera; I've seen it performed live a couple of times.

So nice! I saw it live with Anthony Rolfe Johnson and he was incredible!

When I read Jon Vickers would be singing PETER GRIMES for the last time at The Met, I was able to get a single ticket and heard him. Vickers was the greatest tenor in the role and rightly so. Profoundly moving on his later recording so we have that document as well. This aria is also beautiful and moving, one of Britten's best works. A masterpiece still in our time.

The recent GRIMES Met production was a disaster, which I also saw but it was awful unfortunately.
