Albert Herring

Benjamin Britten

book tickets


1950s suburbia, Lady Billows is organising the annual May Day festival and desperate to find girls for the coveted position of Queen of the May. However, it turns out none of the girls in the village are virgins – disqualifying them. Thus, Lady Billows and Superintendent Budd decide to select a May King instead of a May Queen. Albert Herring, a virgin, is the perfect candidate. This little known Britten chamber opera is masterfully written, matching humour with psychological insight and melancholic moments.
