An astoundingly, intense, powerful and thought-provoking piece – The Turn of the Screw (music by Benjamin Britten, libretto by Myfanwy Piper, after the story by Henry James) is making its presence known at Garsington this season and it’s a glory to behold.
Benjamin Britten’s opera The Turn of the Screw is given the Open Air Theatre treatment in Timothy Sheader’s production. Here’s what critics have had to say about it…
‘I deliberately stayed away from the novel as I knew it was written from a different perspective and I didn’t want to judge the performance.’
The Open Air Theatre has announced the programme for its 2018 summer season, under the continuing artistic directorship of Timothy Sheader. The headline productions are Peter Pan, As You Like It, Dinosaur World Live, Little Shop of Horrors, and The Turn of the Screw, a co-production with English National Opera.
