Composed by Benjamin Britten
Directed by Sam Buntrock
Conducted by Jayce Ogren
New York City Opera marks British composer Benjamin Britten’s
centennial with a new production of his contemporary 1954 chamber
opera, set in the early 1980s and directed by Sam Buntrock
(Sunday in the Park with George, Broadway). Based on a
ghost story by Henry James, The Turn of the Screw is
described by Buntrock as a contemporary horror story in which
“chilling events unravel a mysterious building’s terrifying past,
pushing the boundaries between sanity and the supernatural.”
Tenor Dominic Armstrong (A Quiet Place, New York City Opera) lends his "lustrous, sweet voice" (The Washington Post) to the role of Peter Quint; Flora is sung by soprano Lauren Worsham (Candide, New York City Opera; Dog Days, VOX/New York City Opera); and the "lustrous" (The Wall Street Journal) soprano Jennifer Goode Cooper both make their New York City Opera debut as Mrs. Grose and Miss Jessel, respectively.
