Oberlin Opera Theater Presents Britten’s “The Turn of the Screw”

Wed 3/7, Fri 3/9 & Sat 3/10 @ 8PM

Sun 3/11 @ 2PM

In 1954 British composer Benjamin Britten’s opera The Turn of the Screw, debuted at the Venice Biennial, with Britten’s life partner, tenor Peter Pears, in a prominent role.

Based on an eerie gothic ghost story written in the late 19th century by Henry James, it tells the story of a governess who is hired to care for two orphans in a house with mysterious presences, and told never to ask questions about the situation. So you know something evil is going on!

Oberlin Opera Theater is staging the work, with performances taking place in Hall Auditorium on the Oberlin College campus. There will be a special brunch on Sun 3/11 at the Hotel at Oberlin prior to the 2pm performance that day. Brunch tickets are $25 ; make reservations at 440-775-7001 X 604.

Opera tickets are $10. Call 800-371-0178 or go to oberlinconservatory.
