Classic FM Arts Daily Podcast - 09 May 2009

Bob Jones' pioneering podcast series dedicates time to the artists and organisations that make the classical world turn - this week he talks to ENO.

English National Opera's latest production of Peter Grimes opens this evening at the Colliseum in London. The ENO has a special relationship with the opera having premiered it just after the war. Director David Alden explains why he feels the subject matter is as fresh today as when it was written; plus the artistic director of the Gregynog Festival in mid-Wales on how to top last year's 75th birthday offerings.
