Hop aboard a British man-of-war and set sail for 1797 at BAM, where Benjamin Britten’s opera Billy Budd, based on Herman Melville’s novella, is having a revival in honor of the composer’s centenary. The acclaimed production from Glyndebourne Festival Opera, which features a libretto by E.M. Forster and Eric Crozier, tells the story of a pure-hearted young sailor wrongly accused of being a mutineer and the court-martial that decides his fate. Tony winner Michael Grandage directs.
