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 edge-of-your-seat psychological thriller reaches new levels of tension and 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.

Widely thought of as the greatest of all his works for the stage, Britten's intensely powerful final chamber opera features some of his most brilliant musical characterisation.
