This summer is a very special summer at Central City Opera, and that’s because we are producing the Colorado premiere of Benjamin Britten’s grand opera Billy Budd. On this episode, I talk with the production’s director, Ken Cazan, and conductor, John Baril. What a conversation. Ken and John unpack the drama, music, the opera’s significant to this company and to the operatic canon, interpretation and emotional impact, and so much more.
