Past event: The Turn of the Screw

Britten’s last and arguably greatest chamber opera, The Turn of the Screw combines Henry James’ supernatural tale of innocence and corruption with some of the composer’s most powerful music, creating a work that is by turns ravishing and shattering. A truly stellar cast joins Aurora Orchestra under Nicholas Collon for an atmospheric concert performance of this most elusive and claustrophobic of ghost fables.
