The French Way!
Benjamin Britten (1913 — 1976)
The centenary of Benjamin Britten’s birth is celebrated in 2013. Britten was the most performed opera composer of the latter half of the 20th century, and his musical world is fascinating, unlike that of any other composer. The unusual atmosphere each story generates is brought to life through his unique and haunting music. Watch five of Britten’s major works for the stage on DVD in new productions never before shown during these courses.
