About the Event

In this highly‐anticipated concert, hear the sounds of classical music by Britten at Budapest's Palace of Arts.

Hovering between reality and fantasizing. Constant uncertainty, both on stage and in the auditorium. A psychological drama disguised as a horror story. Opera productions have been the most prominent performances of the Festival Orchestra for years. This time, Iván Fischer has chosen a truly special piece: he directs and conducts Britten’s chamber opera, The Turn of the Screw.
