Henry James' chilling tale of a governess in a remote country house. Desperate to protect the children in her care she is increasingly disturbed by their behaviour. Are they innocent or corrupt; possessed or just high-spirited? Britten's supreme masterpiece has a score bursting with incredible colour, gripping tension and dramatic intensity. Louisa Muller makes her Garsington directing debut and we welcome back Richard Farnes (Falstaff, 2018) to conduct and Sophie Bevan (The Magic Flute, 2011) as the Governess.
