The Turn of the Screw – Opera North
About the event
Watch Opera North’s recent production of The Turn of the Screw on the Opera Vision website.
In a remote country house, a governess fights to protect two orphaned children from strange and menacing spirits. But are these apparitions real, or the product of her troubled imagination? And what terrible evil occurred before her arrival?
Based on a ghost story by Henry James, this edge-of-your-seat psychological thriller reaches new levels of terror and claustrophobia in Alessandro Talevi’s spine-chilling production. Britten’s disturbingly beautiful music ratchets the tension up to breaking point.
