...and Britten's own performance is excellent. The others I've heard are also good, but they don't have Owen Brannigan, who is a riot.
Wasn't he great?! The Robert Newton of singers! Another exemplar - his Polyphemus in Haendl's "Acis" is without peer.
Same with Billy Budd. Maybe seeing them live would enhance the experience.
I saw Death in Venice live at the SF opera a while back. Opening scene is very haunting but overall I'm not sure the whole thing works, but who am I to say?
