The opera was composed by Benjamin Britten. It is set on the rugged east coast of England around 1830, where storms made the lives of fishermen a daily struggle. The opera consists of a prologue and three acts. Montagu Slater’s libretto is based on the character of Peter Grimes in George Crabbe’s book The Borough. The opera premiered in London in 1945.
The fisherman Grimes is suspected by the people of the murder of his apprentice. When Peter Grimes takes on a new apprentice despite warnings and this, in turn, dies in an accident, the angry crowd swears revenge on Peter Grimes. When a boat sinks in the sea, the people are satisfied.
