Product Description:

Henry James' 1898 novel THE TURN OF THE SCREW is brought to spectacular life in this operatic adaptation by Benjamin Britten. Returning to the location that James's original work is set in--Fulbeck Hall in Lincolnshire--Mark Padmore, Lisa Milne, and Diane Montague are among the cast traversing the rooms and corridors of the Hall as they perfectly interpret the original story. Some inspired cinematography helps conjure up a heady atmosphere, while the costume designs are wonderfully reminiscent of the period. Richard Hickox conducts the City of London Sinfonia throughout, offering a highly appropriate musical backing to the events as they unfold.

Description by Kultur Films:

Benjamin Britten's haunting and sinister opera, composed in 1954, is based on the famous novella written by Henry James in 1898. Katie Mitchell's atmospheric and innovative film of the opera returns to the late 19th century setting of the original tale, to a world where it is hard to tell ghosts from mere reflections in the glass. There have been many discussions about what happened to the children in both the novella and Britten's opera. This production, with an inspired cast led by excellent performances from Lisa Milne and Mark Padmore, remains true to both sources. The rich, dark imagery entices the viewer, exposing the deepest layers of the tantalizing, unnamed and hidden past relationships between the two servants and the children in one of the greatest operas of the 20th century.
