On Site Opera Presents The Turn of the Screw


Just as the chill of fall permeates the air, the acclaimed On Site Opera stages three performances of Benjamin Britten’s haunting tale The Turn of the Screw in October. This roving opera takes guests from the Great Lawn and on to Wave Hill house to watch as a terrified governess struggles to comfort her two young charges. This psychological thriller hurtles to a chilling conclusion as guests follow performers into Mark Twain Room and Armor Hall.

The Turn of the Screw will also be presented at Wave Hill on the following dates:

  • Saturday, October 26 - $75.00    SOLD OUT
  • Sunday, October 27 - $75.00     SOLD OUT

Limited tickets will be available for a dress reherasal at 7:30PM on Thursday, October 24.
