A Bit o' Britten

The folks at SF Opera have reached a labor agreement that will allow them to broadcast some of the performances from the archives — beginning this Sunday with the 1976 production of Peter Grimes featuring Jon Vickers, Heather Harper and Geraint Evans (8 p.m. on KDFC).

It's a wee gesture, I guess, to mark the composer's centennial, and personally, I would have welcomed an actual mainstage production alongside the Verdi and Wagner. But look, we take what we can get.

Your annual posting!

Please, sir, may we have some more?

(Sorry, cannot come up with a Trollopeian equivalent.)
