The Turn of the Screw: An opera by Benjamin Britten

Apr 25, 2019 - Apr 28, 2019


Benjamin Britten’s 20th-century English chamber opera—replete with both tonality and dissonance—is something of a horror story, based on Henry James’ disturbing novella of the same name. A young governess is terrorized by suspicious apparitions in a classic tale of the end innocence, the struggle between good and evil … and supernatural realms.

"[Eklund Opera Director] Leigh Holman has achieved such heights in her tenure that it seems almost unthinkable that she could reach a new level of excellence." ~Kelly Dean Hansen, Daily Camera
