  • San Francisco Opera | War Memorial Opera House 301 Van Ness Avenue San Francisco, CA, 94102 United States (map)

When young Billy is pressed into naval service aboard the H.M.S. Indomitable, the recruit’s youth and innocence arouse devotion from the crew, but a commanding officer’s suspicions and dark desire threaten to throw order into chaos. Britten's tempestuous masterpiece based on the novella by Herman Melville returns to San Francisco Opera for the first time in 15 years.
