Haunting terror and mystery.

Chicago Fringe Opera opens its second season with an opera experience like you’ve never imagined. Benjamin Britten’s ghostly chamber opera ‘The Turn of the Screw’ is presented as an immersive guided tour of the famous Berger Park mansion, transformed into a haunted house. Audience members journey through the rooms of the house as the opera unfolds. Join us for this unusual setting of Henry James’s haunting story of terror and mystery.
