Investec Opera Holland Park and ImmerCity present a unique double-bill of opera and immersive theatre as part of OHP’s first ever production of a Britten opera, the taut, brilliant The Turn of the Screw.
After the opera, an eerie theatrical promenade piece, The Dwindling House of Holland, will explore the tangled history of the Holland family.
Britten’s The Turn of the Screw, based on the classic Henry James horror novella, is a musically brilliant and deeply psychological drama that tells the story of a governess and her two young charges at the bleak Bly House. The ghosts of the past emerge to wreak havoc.
After the opera, Immercity will take you on an eerie tour through the hauntingly beautiful park itself. Dare to venture down the dark avenues, swallowed by the shadows, as visions from 350 years of history are awakened around you. Expect sinister tales of the dwindling families of Holland Park by the masters of immersive experiences.
The Turn of the Screw night tour: The Dwindling House of Holland dates are 10:30pm, 3rd, 5th, 9th, 10th and 12th July at 10:30pm. It runs to 45 mins. The tour can be found at Holland House, Holland Park (enter through Ilchester Place Gate).
