Scare Pair: Usher House & Canterville Ghost LA Opera

  • Dates: June 22 and 24, 2018
  • Presenter: LA Opera
  • Venue: The Broad Stage (1310 11th Street, Santa Monica CA 90401)

For those ready for a spooky night out, the Broad Stage transformed into two different haunted houses in a double bill of operas by Gordon Getty. Writer Edgar Allan Poe takes the stage himself as the main character of Usher House, an unsettling chiller that has all the classic elements of Gothic horror: a high-strung recluse, a beautiful madwoman and a sinister doctor, all hidden away in a crumbling manor house full of secrets. The Canterville Ghost puts a deft comic spin on Oscar Wilde's witty tale, in which the 300-year-old ghost of an English nobleman fails to impress his newest audience, a family of Americans who simply refuse to be frightened.
