Byre Opera, whose cast includes students from the University of St Andrew’s, will stage Benjamin Britten’s ghostly masterpiece The Turn of the Screw at The Maltings tomorrow.

Based on Henry James’ 1898 chilling tale of the same name, the story blurs the line between the human and supernatural.

The opera is the culmination of a year of study by the cast.

University director of music Dr Michael Downes said: “I’m very pleased to be bringing Byre Opera to The Maltings’ audiences for the first time.”
