A POE CABARET Featuring Tom Allen & Friends

Tom Allen and Lori Gemmell’s A Poe Cabaret is the perfect entertainment to welcome the gathering darkness of November. Featuring music by the brilliant and troubled impressionist Claude Debussy, his modernist student André Caplet and by the versatile Canadian composer Alexina Louie, A Poe Cabaret combines the compelling and tragic life story of Edgar Allan Poe with great music conjured in his honour. The evening is haunted by three of Poe’s greatest stories: the crumbling gothic shadows of The Fall of the House of Usher, the cautionary quarantine epic The Masque of Red Death and a startling musical setting of Poe’s greatest success, and deepest heartbreak – The Raven. Through story-telling, poetry and riveting music performed on harp and string quartet, A Poe Cabaret will bring the chilling life and art of Edgar Allan Poe in from the cold.

The Raven for narrator, harp and string quartet by Alexina Louie.
Conte Fantastique by André Caplet.
String Quartet by Claude Debussy.
