In the chilling halls of Z Ward Glenside sits one man, here to convince you of his sanity. The Tell-Tale Heart is a classic tale of gothic fiction – of murder and madness – presented as a tour de force one man opera.

“I heard all things in the heaven and in the earth. I heard many things in hell. How, then, am I mad?” Edgar Allan Poe, The Tell-Tale Heart

A man sits in a cell, a tortured soul, cursing the floorboards and that traitorous ever-beating heart.

Edgar Allan Poe’s classic of Gothic fiction is performed by acclaimed tenor James Egglestone in the chilling halls of Z Ward, the home to South Australia’s “criminally insane” for 90 years.

Part of the State Opera’s Lost Operas of Oz series, Dennis Vaughan’s one-man opera is a powerful setting of Poe’s haunting tale that will leave your senses reeling and your heart beating faster.

The Tell-Tale Heart contains psychological themes that are more suitable to mature minds.
 If you are comfortable with your younger family members experiencing a story with psychological themes, they can attend at your discretion. We would advise discussing the plot with them in advance.
