For the rest of the 2009-2010 Season, Opera Up Close will begin at 1 p.m. at the Museum of Contemporary Art Lecture Hall, instead of the traditional 4 p.m. start time.
Additionally, Opera Up Close: The Turn of the Screw Preview will offer a slightly different program than usual. As in the past, General Director Allan Naplan will offer an engaging presentation on the music and history of the opera and host a discussion with our guest artists, including Caroline Worra, Gregory Schmidt, John DeMain and Doug Scholz-Carlson. However, following this segment, we are excited to offer a complimentary screening of the classic 1961 film The Innocents. Based on The Turn of the Screw, the film is a masterful telling of Henry James’ chilling ghost story, which of course also serves as the basis for Benjamin Britten’s opera.

- Same date: Sunday, January 17th
- Same location & price: MMoCA Lecture Hall, $20 (FREE with valid student ID)
