What harbour shelters peace?


In a celebrated 2011 April Fools' post I exclusively broke the news that the centenary of Benjamin Britten's birth in 2013 would be marked by a cycle of the composer's operas given in staged productions at Olympic venues - a cycle culminating in a gala performance of Peter Grimes at Lee Valley White Water Centre. Which should be read in conjunction with the recent non-April Fools' news that the culmination of the 2013 Britten celebrations will be three staged performances of Peter Grimes on Aldeburgh beach - seen in my header photo. All I can say to Aldeburgh's Jonathan Reekie is he should bewaret of that white water.
