Turn of the Screw

by Benjamin Britten

Kihwa Nam, director 
Douglas Kinney Frost, conductor

In English, adapted from Henry James

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.
