The Turn of the Screw is one of the most famous ghost stories ever written, and Opera North is bringing it to the stage…
It’s a story we all know – in a remote country house, miles from civilisation, an unsuspecting governess must battle strange apparitions and sinister forces to protect her two charges. The Turn of the Screw has been giving people goosebumps for generations, but just wait until you see it in opera form, because Benjamin Britten’s disturbingly beautiful score takes the tension to new heights. Now, how would you like to win tickets with dinner at Ibérica?
Hold onto your seats because this is spine-tinglingly good
If you’re our lucky winner, you’ll bag two tickets to The Turn of the Screw at Leeds Grand Theatre on Tuesday 25th February 2020. It’s a psychological thriller, made all the more gripping by the music, so forget the book and forget the film, because this is your chance to experience The Turn of the Screw as never before.
Sent to Bly with strict instructions never to contact her employer, The Governess falls instantly in love with Miles and Flora, the two children in her care, but so it seems did their last governess. Miss Jessel has returned from the dead with her former lover Quint, and together, they’re trying to tempt the children away. As the story unfolds, you’ll find yourself questioning if any of it is real or if it’s just a figment of The Governess’ troubled imagination.
