A celebrated composer, conductor and pianist, Britten was a central figure of 20th century British classical music. He wrote music in many genres, from film scores to opera, and some of his best-known works include “Peter Grimes” and “The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra.”

The evening’s program will feature a variety of English opera highlights, including selections from “A Midsummer Night's Dream,” “The Turn of the Screw,” “Paul Bunyan,” “Peter Grimes,” Noye's Fludde,” “Gloriana,” “The Rape of Lucretia” and “Albert Herring.” Carol Rausch will once again assume the role of music director and pianist.
