The Turn of the Screw

  • San Francisco Conservatory of Music 50 Oak Street San Francisco, CA, 94102 United States (map)

The Turn of the Screw is regarded as a dramatic masterpiece in twentieth-century opera. Based on the Henry James novella of the same name, Benjamin Britten's tour de force pulls us in and doesn't let go, toying with our senses and sensibilities. A stagework full of frightening intent, The Turn of the Screw is one of SFCM Opera's most adventurous and serious works - an eerie tale exploring death, fate, innocence, and possession.
