Based on the novella by Henry James, The Turn of the Screw is one of the most gripping ghost stories ever written. The opera is by Benjamin Britten, one of the 20th century’s greatest composers, born 100 years ago this fall. A tale of a young governess and her two charges in an English country manor – but all is not as it seems. Or is it?
Directed by Mark Streshinsky and conducted by Jonathan Khuner, with soprano Laura Bohn and Merola alum Daniel Curran in the central roles.
July 20 and 26 at 8 pm; July 28 at 3 pm. El Cerrito Performing Arts Theater
