A new play by Sue Blundell celebrating the relationship between the composer Benjamin Britten and his long-term partner, tenor Peter Pears.
Based on “My Beloved Man: The Letters of Britten and Pears” (published by Aldeburgh Studies in Music) the play opened Fitzfest 2017 to great acclaim.
Two actors, six musicians and one opera singer tell the story of a great British composer who struggled with society’s attitude to same-sex relationships, in a fascinating combination of live music and dynamic physical theatre.
This event is part of 96 Festival.
A celebration of progress, achievement and possibility.
