Laine Rettmer and Jacomo Bairos
Join us as we introduce you to the creative team behind our eagerly awaited multimedia production of The Turn of the Screw at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. Now premiering in October 2021, the chamber opera The Turn of the Screw tells the ghostly story of an old mansion with expansive gardens and the secrets behind the lives lived there.
Designed and directed by Laine Rettmer, this site-specific production weaves together live video, projections and historical photographs that intertwine the opera’s plot with the intrigue of the lives lived at Vizcaya. Laine Rettmer's productions have been praised as “wickedly smart” and “devastatingly funny” by The New York Times, and “not only profound but also shattering” by the Observer.
Jacomo Bairos is Founder and Artistic Director of Miami's own Nu Deco Ensemble, and has conducted orchestras across the US including the Atlanta Symphony, Houston Symphony, San Francisco Symphony and the Boston Pops.
Meet them in this online gathering, and join us in the anticipation of bringing The Turn of the Screw to life at Vizcaya.
