Opera Vista – Philip Glass’ “The Fall of the House of Usher”

We preview Opera Vista’s production of The Fall of the House of Usher! The opera by Philip Glass is based on Edgar Allan Poe's classic gothic horror tale. Company members sing live for us in the studio, in anticipation of their performance on Saturday evening, under the stars at Bayou Bend.

Catherine Lu gets together in the Geary Performance Studio with Artistic Director, Viswa Subbaraman; stage director, Charles Stanton; tenor Kerry Jennings (“Roderick Usher”), bass-baritone Michael Vaughn (“William”), and soprano Ann Scott Davis (“Madeline Usher”); and pianist Kathryn Woodard.
