Our unsettling production of Britten’s ghost opera The Turn of the Screw is now open. Here’s what some of the audience have been saying so far…
Feel thoroughly wrung out by #ONTurnScrew. Story still strikes me as too bizarre to be told but it was musical perfection. Start of the night was @MarkWagstaff10 with his timps, all beautifully conducted by Leo McFall! @Opera_North

It was brilliant! All parts of the production were stunning, but I particularly want to highlight the musicians who brought the whole thing to chilling life. Well worth weathering #StormDennis to get to!

Extraordinarily telling performance. Made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. Another triumph, Bravi

@Opera_North Turn of the Screw is superb, best production I have seen, particularly loved the musical performance, real atmosphere and colour.

Fabulous evening at the opera @Opera_North #ONTurnScrew. I am struggling to find sufficiently superlative superlatives to describe it, it was truly brilliant. Thanks to everyone involved in the production. Don’t have nightmares!

Brilliant #ONTurnScrew last night with @Opera_North Superbly sung and played, creating an eerily claustrophobic two hours of inner turmoil. Not a single weak link in Britten’s taxing score. Loved it – thank you 😊
