One of the great operas, Peter Grimes is a psychologically penetrating portrait of a tortured outsider antihero versus the cruelty of a small-town mob. Set in The Borough, a claustrophobic Suffolk fishing village, this tragic drama plays out against vivid musical seascapes. Nature is a character – beautiful, tender and savage. Grimes – wild, individual and visionary – hurls himself against the implacable forces of society and the sea. David Robertson’s ‘driven, exacting’ conducting and a cast led by an extraordinary Grimes in Australian tenor Stuart Skelton bring this gripping and resonant opera to life in the concert hall, backed by the power of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.
