Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Audiences will almost sense the salty air and the power of a savage sea when charismatic conductor David Robertson leads the St. Louis Symphony in a concert performance of Britten’s Peter Grimes, regarded as one of the most popular operatic masterpieces of the 20th century. This visceral work, performed on the centenary of the composer’s birth, depicts an overwhelming sense of fate in a misfit fisherman whose thwarted hopes lead inevitably to tragedy.
