The Turn of the Screw

Not all secrets stay in the grave. Such is the case at Bly Manor.


Hired by a mysterious and absent guardian, a young governess travels to a remote English country house to care for two precocious young orphans. Greeted by the housekeeper, Mrs. Grose (Christine Brewer), she is soon faced with the possibility that something sinister is afoot.


What follows are a series of increasingly ominous supernatural accounts with two of the manor’s previous staff – Miss Jessel, the children’s depraved former governess, and Peter Quint, the valet.


Based on the mid-19th century horror novella by Henry James, The Turn of the Screw, Benjamin Britten’s seductive, luminous and brilliantly structured score builds delicious tension to create one of opera’s greatest ghost stories, which will have you gripping the edge of your seat.


The Turn of the Screw, presented by Union Avenue Opera, will be sung in English with projected English supertitles.
