______________

Nevermore, a mysterious musical that draws new breath into Edgar Allan Poe’s poetry and prose to ink-in his life’s passions.

Take a dark and mysterious journey into the life, loves and creative passions of Edgar Allan Poe. This imaginative musical uses Poe’s poetry and short stories as its base and his shifting obsession with the women in his life as its catalyst.
With beautiful haunting melodies, Nevermore breathes new life into Poe’s work and explores a twisted true-life tale that is as bizarre as his classic stories of the macabre.

The works of Edgar Allan Poe are more universal than one might suspect at first glance. Poe’s words are filled with themes of love, hate, hope, horror, passion, and fear. Particularly his poetry filled with rhythm, and dramatic sounds that inspires.  Even Poe, critically panned in his day for his ‘musicality’ as a writer, felt that true beauty was the combination of music and poetry. Thus was born the collaboration of Nevermore with a lyricist 200 years old.

You may be familiar with some of Poe’s works such as ’the House of Usher’ and ‘The Raven’. Poe is considered to have developed ground breaking genres in writing as father of the Detective Story and being an accredited influence on Jules Vern’s Science Fiction stories.

This new and impassioned musical weaves its tale of the man, Edgar Allen Poe, tantalising our senses, embracing our anguish and inspiring our innermost verse.
