The Fall of the House of Usher (Glass opera)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Fall of the House of Usher is a 1988 opera by Philip Glass to a libretto based on Edgar Allan Poe's 1839 short story by Arthur Yorinks who also worked with Glass on The Juniper Tree.[1][2]

Since its 1988 staging in Cambridge, Glass’s opera has been mounted by numerous opera companies, including Long Beach Opera (California), Wolf Trap Opera (Virginia), Cottbus (Germany), and the renowned Maggio Musicale Festival in Florence (Italy). [3]

The Fall of the House of Usher was staged in Firenze, Italy during the "Maggio Musicale Fiorentino" Festival in May 1992, conducted by Marcello Panni and staged by Richard Foreman in presence of the author in Teatro della Pergola, Firenze.

Arthur Yorinks has come up with a workable libretto that effectively dramatizes Poe's story, cleverly fleshing out the action and ... Richard Foreman's production was originally devised for the world premiere in May 1988 at the American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
  2. ^ Wolf Trap Opera is marking the 80th birthday year of Philip Glass by staging two of the American composer's lesser-known operas this season. In June the company collaborated with Halcyon Stage in a production of The Fall of the House of Usher, directed by Septime Webre. Now, for its final staging of the summer Wolf Trap is presenting a double-bill featuring The Juniper Tree, which Glass co-composed with Robert Moran, seen Friday night at the Barns. The connection between the two Glass works is librettist Arthur Yorinks, who took the scenario of The Juniper Tree quite literally from the rather horrifying fairy tale of the same title by the Brothers Grimm.
