The Fall of the House of Usher

Boston Lyric Opera gives an arthouse cinematic treatment to Philip Glass’ opera The Fall of the House of Usher. This chilling film places Edgar Allan Poe’s iconic gothic horror story in the imagination of a migrant child as she journeys into the United States. Experience the world of the Ushers through her eyes, as she reaches for the promise of the American Dream. Music comes to life through hand-drawn animation, stop-motion film, and archival footage, featuring a brand-new recording by BLO artists.

Ariadne auf Naxos

Boston Lyric Opera’s January 1991 production of Richard Strauss’s Ariadne auf Naxos was a milestone for the company in many ways, not the least of which was its platform to launch the enduring international career of American soprano Deborah Voigt. It was this production, reviewed by New York Times, for which critic John Rockwell declared Voigt “one truly remarkable singer” and set her on a career of Wagnerian proportions. Voigt’s astonishing performance in the title role, alongside Erie Mills as Zerbinetta, David Rampy as Tenor/Bacchus, and Kristine Jepson as Composer, all under the baton of conductor Joseph Rescigno, shines again in this musically remastered and visually enhanced recording.

The Butterfly Process

This first discussion focuses on the essential questions to ground us in the work of Madama Butterfly, including the socio-political context during the time of its premiere and how that changed during and after World War II. Phil Chan will join Dr. Kunio Hara, a preeminent Puccini scholar, to contextualize these themes to frame a community discussion.
