Peter Grimes was first staged at Glyndebourne in 1992, continuing Glyndebourne’s long standing tradition of presenting Britten operas. This recording, from the 2000 Festival revival of Trevor Nunn’s production, features tenor Anthony Dean Griffey making his Glyndebourne debut in the title role.
"This is the greatest conducting and playing – LPO on top form – of Britten’s first operatic masterpiece I’ve ever heard, by some way"
