Social media is buzzing with comments, both about our opening night performance and about the story of Peter Grimes. Two more performances – Thursday June 23 at 7:30pm and Sunday June 26 at 3pm. Call 609.258.2787 or go online to purchase tickets!

“Well sung, well performed, and a beautiful work.” – Daniel T.

“An opera as stunning as Peter Grimes can almost make you forget about Mozart.” – Scott Burnham (Princeton professor and Mozart expert)

“Very gripping performances!” – Grant B.

“The plot: after a trajedy, everyone in town makes a rash judgement about whom to blame. Glad that does not happen in real life!” – David C.

Many patrons have also written to us with their compliments –

“Twas an excellent performance. Dark and unsettling. The story brought to mind the mob psychology prevalent in much of the USA and world political scene.” – Ralph

“I for one was mesmerized – and not bored for one minute. It was an unbelievable experience… a dramatic display of human wickedness which leads Peter Crimes to despair.” – Elisabeth

“I … found the last scene (with the repeated chant of the chorus in the distance) quite moving.” – Inge
