No one has ever been forced into military service with as much enthusiasm and delight as young Billy Budd. But in his merriment, the young sailor unwittingly provokes his doom. In saying goodbye to his old ship — the perilously named "Rights O' Man" — he stirs the fear of mutiny among his commanding officers, who vow then and there to crush the young upstart and end his career before it starts. Baritone John Chest makes his San Francisco Opera debut as Billy in Benjamin Britten's maritime masterpiece, "Billy Budd."
