Reviews are in for The Turn of the Screw 27

By Open Air Theatre

The Turn of the Screw Set

The reviews are in for The Turn of the Screw and, as the Rupert Christiansen writes in the Daily Telegraph: “it’s hard to imagine a more aptly evocative setting for Britten’s masterly adaptation of Henry James’s ghost story than the Open Air Theatre”.

“REVELATORY – A stunning re-imagination of Britten’s ghost opera from ENO and Regent’s Park Theatre.” (WhatsOnStage)

“Britten’s score becomes increasingly suggestive of evil forces insidiously whittling away the sanity of trusting innocents.” (The Times)

“Soutra Gilmour’s set is a masterpiece.” (Financial Times)

“There is a feeling of something unworldly…a psychological drama, in which the corruption of innocence is all too real.” (Evening Standard)

This superb production creeps into every corner of the outdoor space, as the battle for children’s souls intensifies. Timothy Sheader’s production left me feeling that we were watching a genuine contest with forces of evil.” (The Guardian)

“The singing is superb and one sensed that every member of the capacity audience was spellbound” (Opera Today)

“Accomplished, sophisticated and disturbing.” (Broadway World)

The production closes on Saturday 30 June, and ticket availability is limited.
