Why See Seattle Opera - The Turn of the Screw?
A spine tingling ghost story
Menace seems to haunt every corner of Bly House, the new home of a young governess, charged with looking after the manor's two orphaned children, wards of an unseen and un-caring guardian. As chilling tension grows, the governess must face up to the ominous spirits before she becomes one herself. A first-class Victorian ghost story, let Seattle Opera transport you to this famous house of horrors this Halloween.
Based on Henry James' 1898 novella, Britten and librettist Myfanwy Piper craft a seductive and psychologically compelling tale, marrying the score and story together expertly into what is now considered one of the finest English operas, unsettling audiences all over the world since its 1954 premiere.
