The Turn of the Screw

Britten Sinfonia © Benjamin Ealovega

Summary

The intimate Linbury Theatre provides the ideal space for Henry James’s tense, classic ghost story turned by Benjamin Britten into a major work of 20th-century opera. The story follows the malign influence of two ghosts on two children, Flora and Miles, whose governess is unable to prevent a final and deadly conclusion. Claustrophobic, psychologically disturbing and even uncomfortably voyeuristic, this new production follows Billy Budd and Death In Venice in the Britten cycle of works from The Royal Opera. It has a strong young British focus under conductor Finnegan Downie Dear and Natalie Abrahami, who collaborates with Michael Levine on direction and design.
