Albert Herring: A Classic British Comedy

Benjamin Britten

Benjamin Britten

Albert Herring tonight at 8:00 PM on The Tuesday Night Opera

“…all good, right thinking people in this country are fed up with being told that all good, right thinking people in this country are fed up with being sick and tired. I’m certainly not, and I’m sick and tired of being told that I am.”

–Monty Python’s Flying Circus

WFMT’s celebration of Benjamin Britten at 100 continues this evening with his comic opera, Albert Herring. Britten’s opera demonstrates once again, that no one makes fun of the British better than the British. Albert Herring is nothing if not a poke at “all good, right thinking people.”

Albert Herring Libretto

Tonight’s opera stars Peter Pears, April Cantelo and Owen Branningan.
