The Turn of the Screw

Details

A TERRIFYING, EDGE-OF-YOUR-SEAT THRILLER

In a remote country house, a newly-appointed governess fights to protect two children from menacing spirits. But are these apparitions real, or the product of her troubled imagination? And what terrible evil occurred before the governess’s arrival?

Based on the ghost story by Henry James, Britten’s psychological thriller of a chamber opera reaches new levels of terror in ALESSANDRO TALEVI’s spine-chilling production. The theme of _The Turn of the Screw_ – of innocence abused and corrupted – had a particular fascination for Britten, and he clothes this dark material in music of disturbing beauty that winds up the tension to breaking point.

‘An electrifying production…absolutely enthralling.’
★★★★★ — The Telegraph [https://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/music/opera/8041065/Turn-of-the-Screw-Grand-Theatre-Leeds-review.html] (2010)

‘My spine is still shivering like a blancmange in the wind…stunning.’
★★★★★ — The Times [https://www.thetimes.co.uk/topic/opera?page=1] (2010)
