ENO's award-winning production paints a vivid picture of a small community's descent into suspicion, gossip and mob mentality in the face of a tragedy. What really happened to Peter Grimes's missing apprentice, and was he involved? Despite the suspicions of the townspeople, after questioning in court, Grimes is released without charge. Subjected to a hate campaign, Grimes's state of mind and behaviour becomes increasingly unstable. And then he takes on another apprentice, with tragic consequences.
