PETER GRIMES is probably Benjamin Britten's most famous and admired opera, appreciated around the globe for its visceral beauty and portrayal of a small community which struggles to accommodate the fisherman and outsider Peter Grimes. For 2013, PETER GRIMES comes home in a landmark project with open-air staging on the beach at Aldeburgh - the very location in which the opera is set - as dusk fades over the sea and darkness falls. Aldeburgh Music's stage production, directed by Tim Albery and conducted by Steuart Bedford, will be filmed for cinema release; the film version will be directed by leading multi-camera director Margaret Williams. With the North Sea and sky as the backdrop, a first rate chorus and orchestra PETER GRIMES ON ALDEBURGH BEACH promises to be one of the most talked about cultural events of 2013. Written by
