After the great success of their inaugural production of The Rake’s Progress at Wilton’s in 2017, OperaGlass Works returns with The Turn of the Screw. An opera in two acts by Benjamin Britten with libretto by Myfanwy Piper after the story by Henry James.  

John Wilson, ‘one of the finest musicians around’, will conduct his handpicked ensemble of 13 exceptional musicians.  

Mesmerising and compelling, The Turn of the Screw, as it pronounces in the Prologue, is ‘a curious story, written in faded ink.’  Set in an old English country house, the housekeeper and two young orphaned children welcome an eager new governess when she arrives from London to look after them and a ghostly tale unfolds.  This haunting, ambiguous telling of innocence and corruption is one of the major works of the 20th century and Wilton’s is the perfect place to tell it.
