The Fall of the House of Usher 
An Opera in Two Acts by Philip Glass and Arthur Yorinks

“. . . Despite the bloodlessness of the protagonists, this is a full-bodied opera that carries a wallop . . . It would be remiss to scant the crucial contribution made by the superior libretto by Arthur Yorinks, which aggressively adapts the original to the demands of the stage.” - Myron Meise, The Hollywood Reporter, January 28, 2013

"The Grimm tales are famed for the dark hints of ritual and irrationality, but this one is positively primordial. And yet it retains its childlike trappings, its aura of magical innocence and inexorability, and Mr. Yorinks translates it sensitively to the stage." - John Rockwell, The New York Times, December 15, 1985
“. . . Glass and Moran set a libretto adapted with ingenuity by Arthur Yorinks from the gruesome family story "Von dem Machandelboom" in the Brothers Grimm's Kinder-und Hausmärchen…” - Opera News, June 2007
