The Butler Opera Center presents
Benjamin Britten’s The Turn of the Screw
In English, adapted from the novella by Henry James
Kihwa Nam, director
Douglas Kinney Frost, conductor
A governess is hired to care for two young children; their guardian, the children’s uncle, is living in London with no interest in caring for them himself. There are only three rules he asks the governess to follow: never write to him about the children, never ask about the history of the house and never abandon the children.
Employing Britten’s signature mixture of tonality and dissonance to haunting effect, The Turn of the Screw is an old-fashioned ghost story that also touches on very contemporary themes.
