Gustav von Aschenbach, a novelist in crisis, leaves Munich for Venice in search of fresh inspiration. Aschenbach is captivated by the beauty both of the place and Polish boy Tadzio. Britten's sensual final opera is tinged with mortality, and an exotic orchestral score conveys the story to great dramatic effect.

Running time: 2hrs 45mins
