On this episode, I talk with the three leading men of Central City Opera's Colorado premiere of Billy Budd: our Billy Budd, baritone Joshua Hopkins; tenor Daniel Norman, singing Captain Vere, and bass-baritone Kevin Burdette, who is Master-at-Arms John Claggart. These three characters make up the heart of the conflict of the story. Josh, Dan, and Kevin discuss their complex characters, Britten's gift of setting this story and text with such deliberate care and attention, and why this production is one that you really should not miss.
