Tony Palmer – Omnibus: Benjamin Britten and His Festival (1967)

Tony Palmer’s classic behind the scenes look at the Aldeburgh Festival and the opening by the Queen of the new concert hall at Snape.

This was the first film made by the BBC ever to be networked in the USA, and the first of Tony Palmer’s three portraits of the great composer, the others being the Italia Prize-winning ‘A Time There Was’, and the multi-award winning ‘Nocturne’, made for the 100th anniversary of Britten’s birth.

“A superb film (which) may well achieve the status of a classic, repeated again and again over the years… the brilliant editing (was) of the highest quality, making a natural partnership of music and picture.” – Sean Day-Lewis, The Daily Telegraph
