Benjamin Britten's 1955 opera of Henry James' 1898 novella concerns the demonic possession of two children by a formerly alive governess and butler. Or maybe it's not. What first appears to be a stock ghost story about the struggle between good and evil takes on complex meanings through the medium of Britten's eerie music. The opera is divided into sixteen scenes, fifteen variations on one nine-measure "Screw" theme, so called in part because of its powerful delineation of mounting tension--Peter Bates
