Haunting Victorian sets depict the world of the Henry James novel on which this dark opera is based.

The thriller is sung in English, and tells of two children who are pulled toward the world of the dead by the ghosts of their prior governess and her lover.

This is the third opera in Houston Grand Opera’s ongoing Benjamin Britten series.
