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.

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.
