The World's Greatest Music
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.
When Grimes hears the mob of villagers approaching, he gets ready to set out to sea. He tells John to be careful climbing down the cliff to his boat, but the boy falls to his death. When the mob reaches the hut, Grimes is gone and they find nothing out of order, so they disperse. Photo © ENO/Robert Workman
