Nevermore – The Imaginary Life & Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe

Delightfully dark, heartbreakingly comic, playfully perverse, beautiful and grotesque, Nevermore – The Imaginary Life & Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe┬áis a whimsical and chilling musical fairytale for adults. The line between fact and fiction in this tale is slim, dreams function as reality – and just like in Poe’s work life and death are blurry. Bizarrely beautiful and wonderfully witty, Nevermore uses haunting song, poetic storytelling and surreal imagery to explore the events that shaped Poe’s career and ignited his lifelong battle with “visions dark and sinister.”
