Synopsis:
Albert Herring, Benjamin Britten's comic opera which is gently laced with moments of farce, is a jocular parody on life in East Suffolk at the turn of the 20th century. It is a quaint, nostalgic journey to a bygone England and the journey has come full circle back to Glyndebourne where this piece was premiered in 1947. A Suffolk man himself, Sir Peter Hall returned triumphantly to his roots in this lovingly recreated production which leads us through the tale of Albert - a gullible, naive greengrocer lad who, much to his embarrassment is made village May King when it is realised there are no longer any girls with the necessary virtuous qualifications.
The ensuing antics are brilliantly characterised by a strong British cast in this production, which is infused with freshness and limitless charm.
