2013 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Benjamin Britten. To celebrate this, the tour includes a new production of his masterpiece, The Rape of Lucretia.
Given its world premiere at Glyndebourne in 1946, this new production will be directed by the acclaimed actress and director, Fiona Shaw.
