The Masque: The Stories of Edgar Allan Poe is a new full length work weaving dance and music to tell the stories of The Masque of the Red Death by Edgar Allan Poe. The new music arranged and performed on stage with the dancers by the musicians of Shadowbox Live is intertwined with music from Beethoven, Schoenberg, Ruggles and Ives. This collaborative effort blends Verb Ballets and Shadowbox Live contemporary and rock-and-roll sensibilities to present the original work with choreography by the Associate Director, Richard Dickinson and dancers of Verb Ballets.
In full punk regalia, the ballet begins with Poe’s, The Masque of the Red Death and then moves from room to room of a big castle as each story is unveiled. Within the castle is a central ballroom and seven surrounding rooms representing stories by Poe encompassed within the Red Death. An actor from Shadowbox Live portraying Poe will guide us through the evening as the ballet unfolds with revelry as the world outside sinks into chaos.
