Regent's Park Open Air Theatre, in association with English National Opera presents Benjamin Britten's The Turn of the Screw in London for a strictly limited season
The story of unearthly encounters at a remote country house, and of a young governess desperate to protect her children, finds chilling new levels of suspense in this unique outdoor production at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre.
Director Timothy Sheader and members of the ENO orchestra, conducted by ENO Mackerras Fellow Toby Purser, bring their award-winning skills to Britten's masterly reworking of Henry James' classic novella.
The cast features Elgan Llyr Thomas / William Morgan as 'Peter Quint', Rhian Lois / Anita Watson as 'Governess', Janis Kelly / Sarah Pring as 'Mrs Grose' and Nadine Livingston / Rachael Lloyd as 'Miss Jessel'. Directed by Timothy Sheader with designs by Soutra Gilmour, lighting by Jon Clark and conducted by Toby Purser. Music by Benjamin Britten with libretto by Myfanway Piper after a story by Henry James.
PLEASE NOTE: Although the vast majority of performances are completed each year, as the auditorium and stage are completely uncovered, we may have to stop and re-start the show. On rare occasions, it will not be possible for us to complete the performance. Tickets are non-refundable in the event of cancellation because of the weather but may be exchanged. Performances are never cancelled before the advertised start time. You may bring an umbrella, but please refrain from using an umbrella during the performance. For your safety and the comfort of all patrons, only one bag per ticket holder, no larger than 36cm x 30cm x 50cm, will be allowed into the theatre grounds or auditorium. Please note that cloakroom facilities are not available.
