Just as the chill of fall permeates the air, the acclaimed On Site Opera stages three performances of Benjamin Britten’s haunting tale The Turn of the Screw in October. This roving opera takes guests from the Great Lawn and on to Wave Hill House to watch as a terrified governess struggles to comfort her two young charges. This psychological thriller hurtles to a chilling conclusion as guests follow performers into Mark Twain Room and Armor Hall.

In addition to today's dress rehearsal, The Turn of the Screw will be presented at Wave Hill on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, October 25, 26 and 27. Those performances are sold out.

Purchase tickets online.
The maximum purchase per person is 4 tickets.
