Accused of mutinous behaviour, Billy Budd is forced to defend himself, but his fearful, silent response soon gives way to a terrible act of violence. The consequences are disastrous, and nothing can prevent the force of judgment and eventual justice upon him. Discovered among Melville’s papers after his death and published posthumously in 1924, ‘Billy Budd’ is a powerful tale of guilt and innocence, crime and punishment, and the cost of adhering to duty.

'Billy Budd,'' which he wrote with Louis O. Coxe, opened on Broadway in 1951 and was applauded as ''an . It opened that year and provided a main theater and a smaller experimental theater for student productions. He held that post until 1980.

Also performed in 1949 was the opera Billy Budd, featuring a text by Salvatore Quasimodo and music composed by Giorgio Ghedini. Performed in London's Covent Garden Theatre, Britten's Billy Budd featured a memorable interlacing of sea chanteys and traditional hornpipes, as well as words by E. M. Forster and Eric Crozier.

Billy Budd is Britten's grandest opera, particularly in its use of the male chorus in numbers such as Act I's playful sea shanties . The Royal Ballet and Royal Opera's programme for the coming Season include world premieres, major new productions and classic revivals.

Billy Budd is Britten's grandest opera, particularly in its use of the male chorus in numbers such as Act I's playful sea shanties and the rousing Act II chorus 'This is the moment'. Others of the many highlights include Claggart's aria of malevolence 'O beauty, handsomeness, goodness!', Billy's poignant monologue (Billy in the Darbies) as he awaits execution and Vere's morally tortured opening and closing monologues.

After several years of study, in 1962, Harrison Hayford and Merton M. Sealts, J. established what is now considered the correct, authoritative text. It was published by the University of Chicago Press, and contains both a "reading" and a "genetic" text. For example, early versions gave the book's title as Billy Budd, Foretopman, while it now seems clear Melville intended Billy Budd, Sailor: (An Inside Narrative)'; some versions wrongly included as a preface a chapter that Melville had excised (the correct text has no preface).

Show, don't tell. That's what I learned in my undergraduate fiction writing class. And I'm sure that Melville learned it, too. Coxe and Chapman weren't as attentive, I'm afraid.
The play spells out the "clunky"--read: metaphysical--conflicts in the plot, and even dramatizes secret meeting between Billy and Vere. The main thrust of the story is that we don't get to see that! The only thing it moved was my bowels. I wonder why it hasn't been performed in 30 years...
For and excellent dramatic adaptation, see Britten's opera. It at least preserves the mystery and the psychology of Melville's masterpiece.

Rarely does the world of fiction translate to theatre as cleanly and powerfully as this. Poet Louis Coxe and Robert Chapman have done a masterful job of bringing Herman Melville's somewhat clunky morality tale to life in this play. A must read for anyone who enjoys Melville or good, moving theatre.
