Benjamin Britten's Billy Budd based on Herman Melville's story, is one of the 20th Century's most tragic operas and the only opera with an all-male cast.

        I am very pleased with this purchase. At 76 my sight is not what it was. I emailed Boosey and Hawkes to see if I could acquire the conductors full score of this piece. No deal. It is for hire only. So I decided on the 'Study score' and am very pleased with what I have. Considerably bigger than so-called miniature scores and cloth-bound to boot. It is only in the most densely orchestrated parts of the piece that the print is very small but that's OK. I shall be getting 'Peter Grimes' next.
