An unnamed governess travels to an isolated mansion, hired by a mysterious guardian to care for two orphaned children. What follows are a series of increasingly ominous encounters with “the others”—menacing spirits of the manor’s previous staff. Are the ghosts supernatural in origin, or are they the products of her overactive imagination? Britten’s seductive, luminous, and brilliantly structured score utilizes a variety of musical expression. A tantalizingly veiled portrait of psychological disintegration, with tangible tension throughout.
