Usher House and The Canterville Ghost @ The Kaye Playhouse
Oct 19 @ 7:30 pm – 9:50 pm

Ready for a spooky night out? The Kaye Playhouse transforms into two different haunted houses in a double bill of operas by Gordon Getty. Writer Edgar Allen 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.

To Be Sung @ Irondale Center
May 17 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
To Be Sung is an opera in one act.  The libretto was adapted by the composer from a short story by Gertrude Stein; “A Lyrical Opera Made By Two (To Be Sung).  As M. Dusapin states, this is my tribute to American literature”.  He continues, “To Be Sung is an ambitious piece. “I wanted to write something amniotic, extremely sensitive, that situates listening within an almost metaphysical feeling of understanding through light, that demands to be heard through the mystery of the eye.”
