What You'll Get


Edgar Allan Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher is such a potent story of horror, paranoia and madness, San Francisco Opera is putting it on twice in one sitting. This diabolical double-billing at War Memorial Opera House features two, back-to-back adaptations of the macabre tale of an unnamed narrator's nightmarish journey into the sinister mansion of Roderick Usher and his twin sister Madeline. The first, Gordon Getty's Usher House, is sung in English. The second, Claude Debussy's La Chute de la Maison Usher, is sung in French with English supertitles. Both versions utilize spine-tingling musical scores, imaginative video projections and the San Francisco Opera's thrillingly talented singers to blur the line between the real world and the supernatural.

Event Description:

This show’s running time is two hours and 10 minutes, with one intermission.
