Originally composed in 1954 by Benjamin Britten and based on a short story from Henry James, The Turn of the Screw is one of the relative few ghost stories that has made a prominent space for itself among popular opera. In this filmed production, Sir Colin Davis conducts the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House and features Lilian Watson and soprano Helen Donath.
