  3. The Turn of the Screw

For the first time ever, opera fills the intimate Hayes space with Benjamin Britten’s spine-chilling masterpiece The Turn of the Screw.

This gripping tale unfolds in a remote English manor, as a young governess arrives to care for two orphaned children, Flora and Miles. She soon discovers that the grounds, and the children themselves, are haunted by mysterious apparitions. As the governess fights to protect her wards from the sinister forces that surround them, the line between sanity and madness becomes thrillingly blurred.

Britten’s evocative score weaves a web of tension, combining hauntingly beautiful melodies with dissonant harmonies, perfectly capturing the ghostly ambiance of Henry James’s classic gothic novel.

The Turn of the Screw is helmed by celebrated director Craig Baldwin (ConsentJohn and The Flick for Outhouse Theatre Co) and will feature some of Sydney’s rising opera stars.

Presented in whisperingly intimate proximity, this is an opportunity not to be missed. Be immersed in the eerie sounds and psychological suspense of one of the world’s most popular operas, prepare to question the boundaries between the material and the supernatural, and become enthralled by the dark recesses of the human mind.
