come no matter what you want me for. I can dance, I can choreograph. ”With these words, Jerome Robbins addressed the director of the New York City Ballet in 1948.

Benjamin Britten's opera Peter Grimes tells the story of an outsider who gets under the wheels of the society around him. The starting point of this work was a story by George Crabbe, in which life in a small fishing village is described. Britten, who came from Aldeburgh, found his own home in Crabbe's text and decided in the early 1940s to set the Peter Grimes material to music. The title role was performed by tenor Peter Pears, with whom Britten had a personal and artistic relationship.
