Right here in Modesto! Inspired the iconic poem Annabel Lee by Edgar Allan Poe, composer Deborah Kavasch and Librettist Linda Bunny-Sarhad have blended their unique talents to bring this heartbreaking poem to life. Straight from their internationally award winning film The Race, these ladies have done it again! Commissioned by Opera Modesto, Annabel will make its World Premiere at the State Theatre in January 2023.
Completing our twin bill is Tell Tale Heart. Based on the short story by Edgar Allan Poe, composer Stewart Copeland (drummer of The Police), creates a complex world of characters to tell this evocative story in an operatic setting.
