"What Harbor Shelters Peace?"
(Amazon.com)
When Benjamin Britten's "Peter Grimes" premiered in 1945, English opera regained a currency that had been missing since the works of Henry Purcell more than three centuries earlier. In this and subsequent operas, Britten addressed a theme frequently dramatized on the opera stage--the conflict between individual expression and the need for social order. Yet he did so, as Amazon.com contributor Joe A. Nickell demonstrates, with a unique vision that transformed the postwar perception of opera's scope.
