Albert Herring

A Springtime Comic Masterpiece

Streaming: May 22-June 5, 2021

Music by Benjamin Britten
Libretto by Eric Crozier

May Day mayhem. Albert Herring is a rollicking comedy about a shy, innocent boy who, frustrated with small-town conventions, breaks free from the expectations of society. Gently laced with Britten’s musical wit and gifts for parody and caricature, this story about the world’s reaction to an outsider is joyfully brought to life in this springtime presentation.
