Massive and important work by Benjamin Britten was enhanced by a massive and outstanding orchestra and chorus. Very moving evening capped off by angelic children's voices who were located "up with the gods". Very fitting.

Most depressing and felt miserable after it - its way too sombre and melancholic for my liking - thought there would be at least a breathe of uplifting chorus but none to be found.
