THE TURN OF THE SCREW

by Ben­jamin Britten

The most impor­tant prob­lem fac­ing our soci­ety these days is the fact that we are liv­ing in sep­a­rate real­i­ties. Bub­bles are form­ing, with­in which infor­ma­tion is spread with a par­tic­u­lar log­ic that has noth­ing to do with oth­er bub­bles and oth­er logics.

This ambigu­ous view of the world is the sub­ject of the short nov­el “The Turn of the Screw” by Hen­ry James. Set­ting it as an opera, Ben­jamin Brit­ten added new lay­ers, by con­fronting the strict moral expec­ta­tions of Vic­to­ri­an times with the emerg­ing sub­con­scious phan­tasies of young children.

Noth­ing is cer­tain. This per­for­mance will make you ques­tion what you see, think and believe.”

Iván Fis­ch­er
