Billy Budd

Billy Budd Tickets London

As part of the 2019 season, the Royal Opera House presents Billy Budd which will showcase for a limited season from April 23rd.

The warship HMS Indomitable, commanded by the scholarly Captain Vere welcomes three new recruits onboard. While the first two seem nothing special, the third, a young man called Billy Budd, is immediately hailed by John Claggart, the Master at Arms as a jewel - despite his suffering from an occasional stammer. After settling in happily as foretopman Billy quickly finds that his kindness earns him many friends on board.

Over time however, Billy's goodness begins to inspire the tormented Claggart into hatred, and he eventually vows to destroy him and fabricates evidence that Billy has made plans to lead the crew of the ship in a mutiny.  Claggart accuses Billy in the presence of Captain Vere which provokes a violent reaction that has devastating consequences.
