Peter Grimes - Brisbane Festival 2018 at Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) - Lyric Theatre

Peter Grimes - Brisbane Festival 2018 at Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) - Lyric Theatre

Date: 20 - 22 September

Brisbane Festival has assembled an exemplary international team to mount two exclusive, semi-staged concerts of Benjamin Britten’s supreme opera. This will be a monumental, life-defining musical event. Australian tenor Stuart Skelton is the greatest performer of the title role on the planet. One of the most thrilling heldentenors of our time, and the International Opera Awards Male Singer of the Year in 2014, he has appeared in the world’s most celebrated opera houses. The Queensland Symphony Orchestra will be conducted by Scottish star Rory MacDonald, and the staging will be by brilliant UK director Daniel Slater. Peter Grimes is the defining British opera of the 20th century and a masterpiece of musical theatre. What really happened to the young apprentice of gruff fisherman Peter Grimes? Featuring Britten’s most evocative sea-inspired music, including the Four Sea Interludes, Peter Grimes paints a vivid picture of a small community convulsed by rumour and mob rule. It is opera for our times. It is an opera to get the blood rushing. Joining Stuart Skelton for this once-in-a-lifetime event are British singers soprano Sally Matthews and baritone Mark Stone as Ellen and Balstrode, the two people who resolutely stand beside the titanic, but shunned outsider.
