Tony nominated Red director Michael Grandage receives raves for opera directing debut

TONY NOMINATED DIRECTOR OF RED

MICHAEL GRANDAGE

RECEIVES RAVES FOR BILLY BUDD, HIS OPERA DIRECTING DEBUT

Michael Grandage, the Tony Award-nominated director of RED on Broadway, received raves for his production of Britten’s Billy Budd at the Glyndebourne Festival Opera.   The production marks Grandage’s opera directing debut.  
Here’s a sample of what the critics had to say:
 
The Independent – Review by Edward Seckerson, CLICK HERE 
“* * * * (out of five).  Michael Grandage in his thrilling operatic debut achieves a filmic transition between the swift moving scenes of the narrative.”
 
 Telegraph – Review by Rupert Christiansen, CLICK HERE 
“**** (out of five). Grandage’s immaculate staging offers a rare authenticity. Grandage captures all the ship’s sweaty shut in-ness, the hierarchy of its officers, the rigours of naval discipline, and the rituals of rope and sail. The story-telling is pellucid, the characterisation focused down to the last rating.
 
The Times – Review by Richard Morrison, CLICK HERE 
“Soaked and salted in authentic naval detail from yardarm to keel, Michael Grandage’s new staging of Britten’s 1951 opera is a must-see. Grandage makes his opera-directing debut with assurance and astuteness.”
 
Variety – Review by David Benedict, CLICK HERE 
“Blow … blow … blow her away …” The massed chorus unleashes a unison cry, the light intensifies, a massive flying roof piece arrives in position and the orchestra climaxes. No, not climaxes, explodes. Always a key moment in any staging of Benjamin Britten’s “Billy Budd,” it defines Michael Grandage’s magnificently controlled, shattering production. His fusing of music and drama is even more impressive considering that this is Grandage’s operatic debut.”
 
Evening Standard – Review by Barry Millington, CLICK HERE 
“Grandage succeeds in piercing the shadows of oppression and evil with transforming light. It is that redemptive quality that makes this great production such a moving experience.”
