This is drama at its finest. Turn of the Screw is (in my opinion) one of Britten's most accessible operas. The music is beautiful and involving and the story unfolds quickly with powerful climaxes. Boheme moves one to tears. Turn of the Screw...continued

Very well sung and acted. This is, after all, the LA Opera. It probably helps to attend the pre performance lecture and even more to have actually read the book.

Description

James Conlon conducts Britten’s mesmerizing score that brings an unforgettable Henry James classic to the opera stage in a compelling production that perfectly captures the work’s supernatural atmosphere. Soprano Patricia Racette makes her role debut as the Governess, determined to protect two small children from menacing spirits. Tenor William Burden and mezzo-soprano Ann Murray makes their Company debuts, respectively as the ghostly Peter Quint and the housekeeper, Mrs. Grose.
