Gordon Getty has based his opera on ` The Fall of the House of Usher by Edgar Allan Poe. This novel is considered Poes most famous work of prose. This highly unsettling macabre work is recognized as a masterpiece of American Gothic literature. As G. R. Thomson writes in his Introduction to Great Short Works of Edgar Allan Poe : the tale has long been hailed as a masterpiece of Gothic horror; it is also a masterpiece of dramatic irony and structural symbolism.

The same can be said about Gordon Gettys music which is both accessible and exiting.

This is a world premiere recording.

The staged world premiere of the opera `Usher House` will take place in June 2014 by the Welsh National Opera. The same production will also be performed by the San Francisco Opera
