Adapted from Thomas Mann’s novel, Death in Venice was Benjamin Britten’s last full- length opera first performed at Snape in 1973 with Peter Pears in the leading role. After Britten’s death, Pears asked Tony Palmer to film the entire opera on location in Venice which was the place, apart from Suffolk, which meant the most to Britten. The story follows a disillusioned writer spending his last days in a disease-ridden Venice.
