Peter Grimes is the anti-hero outsider in a fishing village whose picture perfect facade conceals the paranoia of closed minds.

This is a brand new production of Britten’s 1945 masterpiece, directed by David Alden, whose previous work for ENO includes the Laurence Olivier Award-winning 2007 production of Jenufa.
