Loosely based on Poe’s tales and poems, and inspired by his stormy and tragic life, this concert performance retains the author’s own black sense of humour while navigating the inner paths of his soul.

In a haunted palace, a young poet meets the devilish Raven, who supplies him with particularly black ink, which guarantees glory and honour.

The poet writes frantically and soon runs out of ink. Desperate for more ink, he careens through the many corridors and halls of the palace.

In each room, he finds a story, a poem, or a page of Poe’s imagination, and everywhere there are dying maidens.

The Tiger Lillies are infamous for their characteristic sound, reminiscent of opera and gypsy music combined with raw passion. They make music in the intersection between the offensive and the brilliant.

This new show promises to be both a visual nightmare and bizarre musical extravaganza.
