Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore —
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
“’Tis some visitor,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door —
Only this and nothing more.”
—The Raven, by Edgar Allan Poe
This event is NOT running in 2021.
Nevermore, the critically acclaimed circus/theater adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s poem, ‘The Raven’, returns for its 4th season in Sleepy Hollow. Created by circus performer/choreographer Hilary Sweeney, and directed by circus/stage/film veteran Carlo Pellegrini, Nevermore tells the story of lost love and harrowing apparitions in a vivid display of aerial acrobatics and gravity-defying storytelling, all set to a haunting musical score. This is Poe’s ‘The Raven’ like you’ve never experienced it before!
2021 dates: not running.
Where: The East Parcel, 195 Beekman Ave, Sleepy Hollow, NY 10591
