Notes & Reviews:

Kultur presents the Opera Australia production of Benjamin Britten's 'The Turn of the Screw', a haunting adaption 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 the breaking point.
