About

Washington National Opera presents its first production of Benjamin Britten's masterpiece Billy Budd. A trio of leading American talents, Dwayne Croft, Samuel Ramey, and Bruce Ford, star in a compelling setting of the Herman Melville story. Staging the production that earned her England's prestigious Olivier Award and France's Grand prix des critiques, renowned director Francesca Zambello captains a gripping depiction of the conflict between justice and duty on the mutinous H.M.S. Indomitable. Renowned Britten specialist Maestro Richard Hickox will conduct.
