David Alden

David Alden has most recently been quoted in an article called "Billy Budd" opera premieres on Russia's Bolshoi stage. David Alden said, “(Melville's novel) has a historical story. It takes place on a British naval ship of war in the 18th century...and that's how the opera was originally presented, with historical costumes, the white wigs. But I have cut all that away, because I think that the story that Benjamin Britten was really telling is timeless.”.
