Description :

When a happy, industrious and strikingly handsome young man joins the HMS Indomitable, everyone is drawn to him. The new crewman’s only imperfection is that he stammers when stressed, a fact that the hardened Master-at-Arms is all too happy to exploit.Britten’s maritime masterpiece about repressed passions and the weight of guilt is performed in Norway for the very first time with this new production by Norwegian National Opera. In her first show since becoming the company’s Director of Opera, Annilese Miskimmon sets Billy Budd in the claustrophobic, hard masculine environment of a submarine. Mark Wigglesworth conducts the all-male cast, starring Jacques Imbralio in the title role.Streamed live on OperaVision on 8 February 2019 at 19:00 CET and for 6 months: Fairfax Vere: Peter HoareBilly Budd: Jacques ImbrailoJohn Claggart: John RelyeaMr. Redburn: Aleksander NohrMr. Flint: Johannes WeisserArtur Jones: Mikkel SkorpenDansker: Kristinn SigmundssonDonald: Martin HatloA novice: Petter MoenA lookout: Thor Inge FalchLietenant Ratcliffe: Jens-Erik AasbøBosun: Ludvig LindströmRed Whiskers: Henrik EngelsvikenSqueak: Marius Roth ChristensenChorus: Chorus of Norwegian National OperaOrchestra: Orchestra of Norwegian National OperaMusic: Benjamin BrittenConductor: Mark WigglesworthDirector: Annilese MiskimmonSet Designer: Annemarie WoodsCostume Designer: Annemarie WoodsLighting Designer: Paule ConstableSUBSCRIBE FOR MOREWEBSITE
