The Fall of the House of Usher by San Francisco Opera

Edgar Allan Poe’s Gothic tale about a decaying castle inhabited by a tormented man and his sickly sister comes to life—twice!

Featuring imaginative video projections, David Pountney’s production evokes the intense atmosphere of Poe’s prose. Brian Mulligan stars in this spine-tingling U.S. production premiere under the baton of renowned conductor Lawrence Foster. Enter at your own risk.
