The Metropolitan Opera’s 2022-23 season continues with Peter Grimes by Benjamin Britten, a performance from last fall. Tenor Allan Clayton stars in the monumental title role of an outcast in an English fishing village who stands suspected of committing unspeakable wrongs. Soprano Nicole Car is Ellen Orford, the schoolmistress who tries to help him redeem himself. And bass-baritone Adam Plachetka is Captain Balstrode. Maestro Nicholas Carter conducts the Met orchestra and chorus in Britten’s unforgettable score, evoking the hardscrabble life of the village as well as the power and mystery of the sea.
