Britten The Turn of the Screw

A young governess is sent to a remote country house to care for two children. She becomes increasingly disturbed by their behaviour but is under strict instruction never to bother their guardian in London. Are they innocent or wicked, possessed or just high-spirited?

One of the most dramatically engaging English operas, it has a gripping score full of musical character, suspense and intensity. Louisa Muller’s acclaimed production, winner of the 2020 RPS Award, returns with Verity Wingate (Governess) and Robert Murray (Prologue/Quint). Mark Wigglesworth makes his debut at Garsington conducting Britten’s extraordinary masterpiece.

Sung in English with English supertitles
