ALL'OPERA 17/18 SEASON ON SCREEN AT THE OLD MARKET HALL

BILLY BUDD

Captured live at Teatro dell'Opera di Roma. Opera in four acts.

A gripping drama based on the short novel by Herman Melville, BILLY BUDD follows a young sailor who finds himself serving under the repressive regime of master-at-arms John Claggart in the Royal Navy.

Unable to bear the goodness that Billy radiates, Claggert becomes determined to destroy him, leading Billy to take harsh actions against his superior. First performed at the Royal Opera House in 1951, this is a fresh and innovative contemporary opera.

Stage Director Deborah Warner 
Starring Jacques Imbrailo and Toby Spence
