Jerwood Hall
London
United Kingdom

Nicholas Collon conductor
Ann Murray DBE Mrs Grose

Sophie Bevan The Governess
Jane Irwin Jessel
Aurora Orchestra

Britten's last and arguably greatest chamber opera, The Turn of the Screw combines Henry James' supernatural tale of innocence and corruption with some of the composer's most powerful music, creating a work that is by turns ravishing and shattering. A truly stellar cast including Ann Murray, Sophie Bevan, Jane Irwin and Andrew Staples join Aurora Orchestra under Nicholas Collon for an unmissable concert performance, atmospherically lit to intensify this most elusive and claustrophobic of ghost fables.

'Refreshing the repertoire and broadening appeal are imperative these days. Nobody does it better than Aurora.'
Barry Millington, The Evening Standard
