Step into a world where the eerie meets the enchanting, where suspense lingers in every note, and where the spectral unknown comes to life on the stage. This Halloween, immerse yourself in an operatic masterpiece that will send shivers down your spine – Benjamin Britten’s “Turn of the Screw.”

Set against the backdrop of a secluded, ominous mansion, Turn of the Screw unfolds a gripping story of a governess tasked with the care of two enigmatic children. But as the line between the living and the dead blurs, you’ll find yourself entangled in a web of chilling mysteries. Are the apparitions real, or is the governess losing her sanity?

Britten’s haunting score, with its evocative melodies and eerie harmonies, serves as the perfect soundtrack for a spine-tingling Halloween experience. Our exceptional cast of performers are ready to transport you to the eerie realm of Bly Manor, where each note is a whisper from the beyond.
