“He was there or was not there: not there if I didn’t see him.”

Benjamin Britten’s iconic opera based on the Henry James gothic novel is one of the pillars of 20th century opera.

It is the tale of a Governess, her two young wards, and the terrible and terrifying secrets of a manor house in the English countryside.
Internationally acclaimed Australian soprano Rachelle Durkin stars as The Governess – a naïve and principled young woman brought undone by mysterious forces hellbent on her destruction. Kanen Breen – one of opera’s most commanding dramatic forces is Peter Quint, her nemesis. Supported by an all-Australian cast including Elizabeth Campbell and Fiona McArdle, under the baton of Anthony Hunt.

Directed by Stuart Maunder, this is a once in a generation experience – don’t miss it.
