Tales By Poe opens Portland Ballet’s season on a haunting note.  This audience favorite brings the classic work of Edgar Allen Poe to life through vignettes based on his short stories set to notorious music and filled with dynamic choreography.  With compelling readings of Poe’s work interwoven with the choreography, the imagery and aura will stay with you long after the curtain closes.

The Friday performance is at 7:30 p.m. and the Saturday matinee is at 2:00 p.m.  Tickets are available through PortTix.

VENUE CHANGE:  Performances will not be held at the Westbrook Performing Arts Center, but at the South Portland Auditorium
