Get to know Britten's tragic opera, about a Suffolk fisherman and his uneasy relationship with his neighbours, with our synopsis and stunning pictures from English National Opera's current production.
Ellen brings John, the new apprentice, to Grimes at the tavern - The Boar - kept by ‘Auntie’ (pictured) and her ‘nieces’, who ‘assign their prettiness’ to the locals. That evening, Grimes immediately sets off to his hut, despite the fact that the Borough is being hit by a terrible storm. Photo © ENO/Robert Workman
