The crossover formation Bühne Cipolla transforms Edgar Allan Poe’s famous short story »The Fall of the House of Usher« into an expressive and poetic puppet theatre production for adults. While the actor Sebastian Kautz breathes life into the cast of puppets, cellist Gero John provides live musical accompaniment.

The production won the Monica Bleibtreu Prize 2019 in the category (modern) classics.
