Benjamin Britten: The Turn of the Screw at Wilton's Music Hall
This is not just live capture. This is a new hybrid form that honours the spirit of the original theatre production of Benjamin Britten's "The Turn of the Screw", but that also embraces the current constraints: the presence of the camera is declared and the intimacy of performing to a live audience is replaced by the singers singing directly into the lens.
Shot on location at Wilton’s Music Hall, the extraordinary atmosphere and charm of this mid-nineteenth-century theatre suits the haunting ambiguities of this opera perfectly. The whole space, every corner, not just the stage, is used to tell the story.
