La chute de la maison Usher
by Claude Debussy
Join the Opera Theatre of Yale College this Parents Weekend for their second show of the season, a reconstruction of Debussy’s opera based on Edgar Allen Poe’s story “The Fall of the House of Usher”.
The opera centers on Roderick Usher, the last living of his bloodline, through his descent into madness and isolation. A crumbling gothic mansion, an unholy love affair, and the interiorality of mind set the themes that Debussy explores in his libretto and score. Haunted house musique d’ameublement.
Performed in French with English supertitles.
