$103.00 - $199.00
$62.00 - $119.00*
Based on Herman Melville's classic American novella, Billy Budd is a powerful tale of innocence and betrayal on the high seas. At the center of this story stands a young sailor whose unwitting actions force his captain to make a fateful decision. Continuing the ongoing celebration of the 100th anniversary of English composer Benjamin Britten's birthday, James Conlon conducts this production, which was staged by famed director Francesca Zambello for London's Royal Opera House. Baritone Liam Bonner returns as Budd to helm the all-male cast, with tenor Richard Croft as Captain Vere. Leading American bass-baritone Greer Grimsley makes his LA Opera debut as Claggart, the master-at-arms maddened by Budd's goodness and beauty.
