The Canterville Ghost - Opera in One Act
Libretto adapted from Oscar Wilde by Gordon Getty
''While my Usher House turns Poe upside down, the libretto for The Canterville Ghostfollows Wilde's short story pretty closely.'' So says Gordon Getty about his second Gothic-therned one-act opera, based on the popular short story by Oscar Wilde. The opera serves as the perfect comic foil to the more sinister and disturbing tale of the previous opera, which was loosely based on Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher. The Canterville Ghost was first performed in 2015 at Leipzig Opera, with Matthias Foremny conducting the Gewandhaus Orchestra and an international cast of singers. This premiere recording invites us to witness again the delightful culture clash of the Old World invaded by modern Americans, set in a haunted mansion in I/ictorian England. The unhappy ghost of Sir Simon, who for centuries has tormented the mansion's inhabitants, is no match for the new pragmatic owners. Sir Simon attempts to scare them away, but finds himself teased and terrorized by the stalwart Otis family instead. He ultimately finds peace and redemption with the help of young Virginia Otis. Getty's libretto and music serve up the perfect balance of humor and humanity required to o hrii the much-loved story to Iife.

Recorded at the Oper Leipzig, Germany, June 2015
