High Performance Rodeo and Vertigo Mystery Theatre present


Catalyst Theatre


“All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.”

For nearly two hundred years, the gothic tales of Edgar Allan Poe have fuelled our nightmares – but the life behind those stories is yet more fantastical. In this bizarrely beautiful production, Edmonton’s Catalyst Theatre uses haunting song and poetic storytelling to explore the events that shaped Poe’s career and ignited his lifelong battle with “visions dark and sinister”.

A whimsical and chilling musical fairytale for adults, Nevermore is an irreverent homage to the iconic misfit whose haunting, darkly comic writings resonate in each of our tell-tale hearts. Coming on the heels of productions in London's West End and New York City, this is Nevermore's Calgary debut!

Winner of 7 Elizabeth Sterling Haynes Awards, including Outstanding Production of a Musical

What they're saying:

"Wildly imaginative and utterly inspired, Nevermore is something not to be believed – or missed. Do whatever it takes to see, hear and experience this outrageous opera of the grotesque, because bizarre doesn’t get any better than this."
