DePaul Opera Theatre Presents: The Turn Of The Screw

October 29, 2017 | 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Written in 1954, The Turn of the Screw is the last of Benjamin Britten’s chamber operas, based on the gothic horror novella of the same title. A sheltered young governess is sent to care for two children in a country house called Bly. At first, her new post seems perfect--the children, Miles and Flora, are positively angelic, and the estate is beautiful. Soon, however, the governess becomes suspicious as apparitions of a man and a woman begin to appear around the house and the grounds. A tale of the struggle of good and evil, the corruption of innocence, and the supernatural, The Turn of the Screw is a terrifying and brilliantly composed thriller that has been called one of the most dramatically compelling British operas of all time.
