Mannes Opera: The Turn of the Screw
December 8, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The College of Performing Arts at The New School presents Mennes Opera:
THE TURN OF THE SCREW
Based on Henry James’s chilling novella, Britten‘s The Turn of the Screw tells the story of a governess, desperate to protect her children from evil as they experience strange encounters at a remote country house. As the story unfolds, the exact nature of evil is questioned as the young woman’s fears bring her closer and closer to the uncanny. Conducted by Daniela Candillari, one of the opera world’s most dynamic up-and-coming artists, Mannes Opera’s The Turn of the Screw features two casts of students in a highly theatrical production that pushes at the boundary between what we know, and what is unseen.
