A chilling ghost story, saturated with menace. Benjamin Britten’s haunting operatic version of Henry James’s famous novella The Turn of the Screw.

A young governess arrives at a remote country house to care for two children with only written instructions from their guardian, who advises not to disturb him. Before long a tapestry is woven of obsession, sexual awakening and the destruction of childhood. A narrative just ambivalent enough for us to project upon it our own fears.

Prologue/Peter Quint - Jared Holt
Miss Jessel - Madeleine Pierard
Mrs Grose - Patricia Wright
Conductor - Holly Mathieson
Director - Thomas de Mallet Burgess
