Last quote by David Alden

(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.feedback
