Benjamin Britten’s comic chamber opera in three-acts, Albert Herring is the “coming-of-age” story of a hapless antihero in a town of English villagers preparing for their May Day festivities. A social misfit with a domineering mother, Herring is embarrassingly crowned the King of May after all the village’s young women are unsuitable as Queen of May. But when two rebellious young lovers spike his punch, he revolts — disappearing after the celebration and spending all his winnings on a night on the town.
Directed by award-winning director Bruce Beresford, conducted by Head of Opera Nicholas Cleobury with lighting designs by Nigel Levings.
