The Adaptation of Poe: A Conversation with Gordon Getty

Co-presented by San Francisco Opera, San Francisco Center for the Book, and Mechanics' Institute

This event is SOLD OUT

Only someone as visionary as Gordon Getty would venture to adapt Edgar Allan Poe’s The Fall of the House of Usher—about a tormented man and his sickly sister—and transform it into an opera! And only a company as bold as San Francisco Opera would present it. Please join San Francisco Opera and Litquake in an on-stage conversation between Mr. Getty and Litquake co-founder Jane Ganahl, about the process of adapting a venerable work of literature into a vibrant piece of music for the stage, at the beautiful San Francisco Center for the Book
