Once again Glyndebourne Opera will be downloading a performance of an opera, this time Benjamin Britten's dark "The Turn of the Screw". Like last month's "Die Meistersinger von Nurenberg" the opera will be available for three weeks. I for one am glad it is available for late viewers as I shall be in London for the Proms Brahms mini-fest next weekend.
The first screening is of the live performance on Sunday 21st August from 6pm and can be found nearer the time on
until 9pm on the 12th of September.
Jonathan Kent’s eerily unsettling staging returns to the Festival conducted by Glyndebourne on Tour’s exciting new Music Director, Jakub Hrůša.
