The Turn of the Screw (Opera or Operetta) archive [OPERA OR OPERETTA]


Based upon Henry James' ghost tale. A young governess is despatched to the country to take charge of two small children by their distant uncle. Her charges appear to be the very picture of "deep sweet serenity" but there are sinister forces at work and her idyll is soon to be destroyed by terror.


Music: Benjamin Britten
Lyrics: Myfanwy Piper
