About

Prepare to embark on a chilling and horrifying descent into madness with The Turn of the Screw, as internationally acclaimed Australian soprano Rachelle Durkin stars as The Governess in Benjamin Britten’s ghostly opera this September. Based on the Henry James gothic novel, it is considered one of the pillars of 20th century opera. The Governess and her two young wards are overcome by the terrible and terrifying secrets of a manor house in the English countryside. Durkin portrays the naïve and principled young woman brought undone by mysterious forces hellbent on her destruction. Kanen Breen, one of opera’s most commanding dramatic forces is Peter Quint, her nemesis. The leads are supported by an all-Australian cast including Elizabeth Campbell and Fiona McArdle, under the baton of Anthony Hunt. Directed by Maunder, this is a once in a generation experience not to be missed. Entry Cost Adult $60
