This past weekend, we took our production of Britten's Billy Budd in a brand new concert staging to the concert hall at Snape Maltings to close this year's Aldeburgh Festival.
This momentous occasion ('...an "I was there" evening' ★★★★★ — Bachtrack) also marked the first ever full performances of Billy Budd at Snape! Here is a selection of audience reactions from social media:
