Usher House Gordon Getty
La Chute de la Maison Usher Debussy
Cwblhad gan Robert Orledge
Première Prydeinig o’r fersiwn newydd
Feiddiwch chi gamu i mewn i Dŷ Usher? Mae’n lle tywyll, dirgel, gyda’i feddwl ei hun yn ôl bob tebyg. Yn eu hoperâu un act mae Claude Debussy a Gordon Getty yn dwyn stori erchyll Edgar Allan Poe i’r llwyfan operatig.
Mae’r ddwy opera yn bwrw swyn hynod ormesol o fygythiad ac anesmwythder drosoch. Pur anaml y mae opera’n cael ei chysylltu ag iasau’r genre arswyd ond mae’r rhaglen ddwbl hon yn llwyddo i greu’r effaith a gaiff y ffilmiau arswyd gorau drwy chwalu’ch nerfau.
Camwch i mewn i Dŷ Usher ond gwyliwch tu ôl i chi.
Roderick Usher is the last surviving male member of his family, living as a recluse in the vast ancestral home with his twin sister, Madeline. She is slowly dying of a disease for which her doctor seems unable or unwilling to find a cause or a cure. Roderick begs an old friend to visit. Shortly after the friend’s arrival, Madeline dies and is buried in a vault beneath the house. In an attempt to calm the increasingly distracted Roderick, his friend reads to him from a medieval romance. As the climax of the tale is reached, the figure of Madeline appears – she had been buried alive and has clawed her way out of the vault to find her brother. Roderick is overcome by horror and as he and Madeline both confront death, the House of Usher collapses around them.
