Britten’s only true comic opera, Albert Herring is the tale of the rite of passage and coming of age of the only son of Mrs. Herring, a grocer in an imaginary small market town in 1900.
Chicago Summer Opera has a three year track record of finding some of the best young talent and giving them an opportunity to prepare and present opera at the post-conservatory level of their careers.
