Turn of the Screw

Continuing the spirit of Halloween, the College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) Opera Theatre and Philharmonia join forces to present a fully staged concert version of Benjamin Britten’s operatic thriller, “The Turn of the Screw,” in the Patricia Corbett Theater on the University of Cincinnati campus on Nov. 5-7.

Based on the famous Henry James novella and described by Stephen King as “the quintessential ghost story,” “The Turn of the Screw” tells the story of a young governess hired to care for two young children on an isolated English manor estate. Shortly after her arrival the governess is haunted by two malicious ghosts who she fears are stalking her innocent charges. Determined to save the children, the governess battles the supernatural while struggling with the apparent complicity of the children. Benjamin Britten blends 12-tone technique, arresting motifs and stirring lyricism, as the “Screw” turns in this chilling tale of sexual repression and the corruption of innocence.

Conducted by Christopher Allen and directed by Amanda Consul, the performance is sung in English. Tickets are $15 general admission and $10 non-UC students. UC students can receive one free ticket with their ID two days prior to the first performance.
