Opera Columbus presents Benjamin Britten's operatic horror story The Turn of the Screw in the Southern Theatre, Wednesday, Sept. 27, Friday, Sept. 29 and Sunday, Oct. 1.

Based on the novella of the same name by Henry James, The Turn of the Screw concerns a governess employed at a crumbling Victorian era mansion and the two children in her care. Miles and Flora appear to be charming, boisterous kids.

But all is not as it seems.
