#amreading: Benjamin Britten’s Libretto for PETER GRIMES

MRS. SEDLEY
(whispering to Ned)
Have you my pills?

NED
I’m sorry, Ma’am.

MRS. SEDLEY
My sleeping draught?

NED
The laudanum
Is out of stock, and being brought
By Mr. Carrier Hobson’s cart.
He’s back tonight.

MRS. SEDLEY
Good Lord, good Lord —

NED
Meet us both at this pub, The Boar
Auntie’s we call it. It’s quite safe.

MRS. SEDLEY
I’ve never been in a pub in my life.

NED
You’ll come?

MRS. SEDLEY
All right.

NED
Tonight?

MRS. SEDLEY
All right.

Self is really, really loving this libretto. So beautiful. Absolute poetry.

BALSTRODE/NED:

The tide that floods will ebb, the tide, the tide will turn.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

Libretto for Peter Grimes, by Benjamin Britten:

  • Women’s Chorus

O when you pray you shut your eyes
And then can’t tell the truth from lies.

  • Auntie

Loud man. I never did have time
For the kind of creature who spits in his
wine.
A joke’s a joke and fun is fun.
But say your grace and be polite for all that
we have done.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
