Alan Oke as Peter Grimes, in Aldeburgh Music’s Grimes on the Beach, June 2013
First Performance: 7th June 1945 at Sadler’s Wells, London
This opera was first conceived while Britten was in California. Happening
to read E.M.Forster’s article on the 18th-century Suffolk poet George Crabbe
in the BBC’s magazine The Listener he was straight away filled with nostalgic
feelings about Suffolk. Pears found a copy of Crabbe’s works in a second-hand
bookshop and Britten read the poem The Borough, which contained the
tragic story of the Aldeburgh fisherman Peter Grimes. He said later:
in a flash I realised two things: that I must write an opera, and where I belonged.
