See Vizcaya in a new light as IlluminArts presents Benjamin Britten’s gothic masterpiece, The Turn of the Screw. Watch the courtyard of the Main House transform in this unique multimedia experience that draws the audience into the opera’s chilling plot.

The chamber opera The Turn of the Screw tells the ghostly story of an old mansion with expansive gardens and the secrets behind the lives lived there. Designed and directed by Laine Rettmer, this site-specific production weaves together live video, projections and historical photographs that intertwine the opera’s plot with the intrigue of the lives lived at Vizcaya.

Past New World Symphony fellow and Assistant Conductor of the New York Philharmonic, Joshua Gersen conducts the musicians of Nu Deco Ensemble and a stellar cast led by 2019 GRAMMY award winner Karim Sulayman as Peter Quint. Luminous soprano Christine Lyons shines as the Governess with Jaye Simmons, former National YoungArts finalist, in the role of Flora.
