The mysterious death of an apprentice ignites the town’s suspicions against the fisherman Peter Grimes (Anthony Dean Griffey). School-mistress Ellen Orford (Katie Van Kooten) is his only ally. Peter Grimes brings to the stage the human struggle of the individual versus the masses against the backdrop of the raging sea.
