Based on the ghost story by Henry James, Benjamin Britten’s edge-of-your-seat psychological thriller reaches new heights of tension and terror in Alessandro Talevi’s spine-chilling production. In a remote country house, a newly-appointed governess fights to protect two children from menacing spirits. But are these spirits real, or the product of her troubled imagination? And what - if any - terrible evil occurred before the governess’s arrival? Widely thought of as the greatest of all his works for the stage, Britten’s intensely powerful final chamber opera features some of his most brilliant musical characterisation.
