Part of the BBC Proms. Concert Performance. First staged a month after VE Day, Britten's searing psychological drama set in a claustrophobic Suffolk fishing community was the critical and popular success that effectively established a new kind of English operatic tradition. ENO has kept the opera at the heart of its repertoire and tonight's concert performance is based on a sold-out production hailed as a ?superb company achievement' on its first outing in 2009. Australian tenor Stuart Skelton once again heads the cast with his remarkable, multifaceted portrayal of the disturbed outsider. There will be two intervals of 20 minutes. Finish time approx. 22:30Performers Stuart Skelton (tenor/Peter Grimes), Amanda Roocroft (soprano/Ellen Orford), Iain paterson (bass-baritone/Captain Balstrode), Rebecca de Pont Davies (mezzo-soprano/Auntie), Matthew Best (baritone/Swallow), Leigh Melrose (baritone/Ned Keene), Michael Colvin (tenor/Bob Boles), Felicity Palmer (mezzo-soprano/Mrs Sedley), Gillian Ramm (soprano/First Niece), Mairead Buicke (soprano/Second Niece), Darren Jeffery (bass-baritone/Hobson), Stuart Kale (tenor/Rev Horace Adams).
