The Cherry Artspace: The Fall of the House of The House of Usher featuring Anna Coogan and Tzar
102 Cherry St, Ithaca, NY 14850
A timeless re-telling of the Edgar Allen Poe story, “The Fall of the House of Usher” combines the classic 1928 film by Jean Epstein with modern opera, film-noir, and improvisation by musicians Anna Coogan and Tzar. This multi-media presentation will explore the place where film, theater, music, and storytelling collide. The neo-operatic score was originally written and performed for the Ithaca Fantastik Film Festival in 2015, and returns to the Cherry in 2018 in a new and exciting form.
