Jul 12, 2020  | 2 hrs 45 min  | 103

One of Benjamin Britten’s most epic operas, Billy Budd transforms a British man-o-war into a floating world, where there is no escape from the clash of men’s virtues and the cost of human error. From thunderous battle scenes to haunting arias, Des Moines Metro Opera presents Billy Budd, the world premiere of the new orchestration, only on Iowa PBS.
