Yesterday we gave you a glimpse of this year's production of La Bohème. Today we continue with video clips from the other mainstage operas this summer.

First up is the creepy and cool ghost story The Turn of the Screw.

From Act One, Scene 5, The Window - The Governess & Mrs. Grose :

From Act One, Scene 7, The Lake - Flora & The Governess:

From Act Two, Scene 3, Miss Jessel - Miss Jessel & The Governess:

And the end of the opera [SPOILER ALERT -- if you want to be surprised by the ending, don't watch this!]:

For something completely different, we also leave you with this rousing number from Oklahoma!'s Act Two opening:
