If you missed out on reading Melville’s famous novella in high school (and we wouldn’t blame you if you did), you can catch the nautical drama of Billy Budd on the operatic stage. Check out this all-male cast’s rendition of the English libretto (finally! An opera you can understand without subtitles). And come an hour early for a pre-performance talk on the opera’s composer Benjamin Britten, who would have celebrated his hundredth birthday this year.
