Peter Grimes was recently reviewed in the Houston Chronicle:
- Peter Grimes returns to Houston Grand Opera for the first time since 1984 in a new production starring the Grammy-winning American tenor Anthony Dean Griffey and directed by Neil Armfield, opening Friday at Wortham Theater Center. Griffey in recent years has emerged as a leading interpreter of the complex title role, which he has sung with the Paris Opera, Santa Fe Opera and the Metropolitan Opera, where his 2008 performance was deemed "a triumph" by the New York Times. – Everett Evans, Houston Chronicle
