Act 1[ edit ] Housekeeper Florence Pike is run ragged. Her mistress Lady Billows is organising the annual May Day festival and has gathered all the important people of the village to elect the May Queen. But Florence has dug up dirt on every single girl nominated, proving that none is worthy to wear the once-much-coveted crown. Lady Billows is depressed. Superintendent Budd suggests that the solution may be to select, this year, a May King instead.

He knows of a young man in town who is as certainly virginal as the girls are not: Albert Herring. The Festival Committee arrives with the news of his selection as May King. Act 2[ edit ] It is the day of the festival.

Asked to make a speech, he is tongue-tied and becomes an object of pity at the feast in his honour, but after draining his lemonade glass which Britten satirically underlines with a Tristan chord , alluding to the philter in that opera. That night, Albert arrives home alone and quite drunk. In the street, Sid keeps a rendezvous with Nancy, and the two discuss their sympathetic pity for Albert before going off together.

This is the breaking point for Albert, who has overheard. He takes the prize money and heads out looking for adventure. Act 3[ edit ] The next morning Albert has not returned, and the village is in a panic. Superintendent Budd is leading the search, while the guilt-stricken Nancy tends to Mrs.

A lengthy threnody of grief follows, but is interrupted by the surprise return of Albert. He thanks the Festival Committee for funding his night out. They, in turn, are outraged by his tale of drunken debauchery and leave in a huff. Albert finally stands up to his mother and invites the village children into the shop to enjoy some fruit at his expense. Musical style and character themes[ edit ] Albert Herring is a musically complex work, despite its somewhat light-hearted subject matter.

The text is genuinely humorous, and the score, while matching the text in character, includes myriad musical quotations as well as some complex forms.

Albert Herring

She summons a Committee to elect a May Queen. None of the suggested candidates stands up to the scrutiny of Florence Pike, her housekeeper. In desperation Superintendent Budd proposes a May King in the person of Albert Herring, a slightly simple but undeniably virtuous village youth. Scene ii In their greengrocery store, Albert and his mother are informed of the celebrations and the 25 pounds prize. Albert attempts rebellion, which is firmly quelled by his mother. The welcome ode, speeches, and toast go more or less as planned. Albert is thoroughly miserable until he has tasted the lemonade — which cheers him considerably!
