Edgar Allan Poe’s Nevermore: In Concert
Composed by Matt Conner
Take a dark and mysterious journey into the life of Edgar Allan Poe. In 2006, Nevermore the musical premiered at Signature Theatre and featured hauntingly beautiful melodies by composer Matt Conner based on Poe’s poetry and short stories, as well as Poe’s shifting obsession with the women in his life.
For one night only, the stunning soundtrack of Nevermore comes to the Mansion at Strathmore in this concert that explores a true-life tale as bizarre as Poe’s classic stories of the macabre.
Presented in conjunction with Poe & Puck: The 27th Annual Strathmore Juried Exhibition.
