When young Billy is pressed into naval service aboard the H.M.S. Indomitable, the recruit’s youth and innocence arouse devotion from the crew, but a commanding officer’s suspicions and dark desire threaten to throw order into chaos. Britten’s tempestuous masterpiece based on the novella by Herman Melville returns to San Francisco Opera for the first time in 15 years.
