Description
Gramophone called this 1992 version of Benjamin Britten's 1971 television opera a "classic interpretation," praising baritone Gerald Finley in the title role of a pacifist in the midst of a military family as "magnificent … driven and anguished." The bonus documentary is Benjamin Britten: The Hidden Heart. It profiles Britten and his lifelong partner, tenor Peter Pears, along with looks at Britten's most famous compositions, including Peter Grimes, War Requiem, and Death in Venice.

"The cast is outstanding…. Who says singers can't act? One of the best opera films ever."—Sunday Times, UK

"This television production … makes Owen's dilemma more convincing than the original … with Gerald Finley singing and acting superbly. The unsympathetic fiancée, Kate, also seems a more complex character than before, well taken by Charlotte Hellekant, and the gallery of disagreeable family members is strongly cast too…. Set mainly in the Wingrave country house, the result is nicely evocative, with the misty ghost scenes sufficiently creepy."—Penguin Guide
