About This Show

It’s 1954 and Benjamin Britten is working on a new opera about purity and innocence. He’s in an illegal gay relationship with Peter Pears so they mustn’t draw attention to themselves. The star of the opera, a roguish 12-year-old choirboy, is coming to stay with them and he has other things on his mind. Someone’s going to get hurt and someone might end up in jail.
