The Sound of a Screw Turning

I think it’s clear by now that I’m obsessed with Benjamin Britten‘s ghost story chamber opera The Turn of the Screw, even more so now that I’ve actually seen it in the flesh…  Today BBC Radio 3 will be streaming a live performance of it from The Barbican in London 7pm their time, which should be 2pm East Coast time.
