- Peter Grimes, opera, Op. 33 - Benjamin Britten - Colin Davis - John Dobson - Jonathan Summers - John Bacon - John Brown - Royal Opera House Covent Garden Chorus and Orchestra - Teresa Cahill - Heather Harper - Anne Pashley - John Lanigan - Jon Vickers - Elizabeth Bainbridge - Thomas Allan - Montagu Slater
One of the most exciting and riveting operatic performances on disc, that of Jon Vickers as Grimes.... From Davis we get a tenser, more neurotic approach to the music [than from Britten], with the Interludes superbly played by the Royal Opera House orchestra.

The recording is as memorable as one would expect, however in this cd set there is no libretto. Be warned.
