Benjamin Britten's haunting adaptation of Henry James’ classic ghost story about a governess put in charge of two mysteriously possessed orphaned children. The tension spirals throughout this masterpiece of psychological terror. As the screw is tightened, the nerves of the governess are strained to breaking point.

‘The set design by Elijah Moshinsky invokes the images of this nocturnal other-worldliness with sheer style… Indeed this production is a masterpiece of design and lighting.’ The West Australian

‘As the Governess, Eilene Hannan performed grippingly…The final scene, going from high drama to poignant grief, was arrestingly good.’ The Australian
