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.
