“A striking new film version . . . among the best items the opera-film discography has to offer.”--Anne Midgette, The New York Times

“An atmospherically spooky and musically outstanding treatment . . . Mark Padmore is chilling in the role of Quint.”--Joe McLellan, Washington Post

“This is a terrific opera video . . . an almost perfect example of what a good opera for home viewing ought to be, and I can’t recommend it more strongly.”--David Hurwitz, ClassicsToday.com

“This DVD is as perfect as The Turn of the Screw is a perfect opera.  There could be no better model for all future film realizations of opera.”--Tim Pfaff, Bay Area Reporter

 “It is beautifully performed under Richard Hickox’s baton and Mark Padmore shines out as Quint.”--James Jolly, Gramophone

“A disturbing drama strongly cast and beautifully filmed to draw the viewer into an unsettling and menacing atmosphere . . . a compelling translation to the screen of one of Britten’s darkest music dramas.”--Jury citation, Vienna TV Awards, 2004
