Benjamin Britten’s Albert Herring July 7, 8, 14, 15 What’s a village to do when a May Queen is needed and the purity of their young women is in question? Go against tradition and select the only virgin in the village: a boy – scandalous! Benjamin Britten’s only true comic opera, Albert Herring explores the themes of innocence lost, social stratification, and Victorian morality, all cast in the composer’s brilliantly witty chamber score. Featuring Christine Brewer as Lady Billows.
