Debut as Mrs. Grose in Britten’s Opera “THE TURN OF THE SCREW”

Premier on 20.06.2021 in Theater Hagen

Maria Markina made this summer her debut as Mrs. Grose in Britten’s opera “The Turn of the Screw” in Theater Hagen. The gripping production staged by Jochen Biganzoli reflects on the themes of innocence and corruption, our inner fears, prejudice and the danger of taking away the agency of the other. Houskeeper Mrs Grose is torn between the sense of loyalty and submission and fear of repressed person to take the responsibility.
