    The Tell-Tale Heart-“A truly Poe-etic ballet!” An innovative new Ballet based on Edgar Allen Poe's famous short story. Interpreting the story from the viewpoint of a female Narrator, award-winning dancer/choreographer Kira Seamon, will combine imaginative staging, lighting and set design, props and choreography with live music and narration. Composer/conductor Chris Fitzgerald of the Berklee College of Music will debut his amazing original score and conduct musicans from the school during the performance. Carolyn Charpie, critically acclaimed actress, recently from the Savannah Disputation of the SpeakEasy Stage Company, (a resident theatre company of Boston Center for the Arts), will expertly perform the role of the Narrator. Striking dancers Brittany Delany, Anne Goldberg and Cathryn McCann will perform the roles of the 3 Policemen.

    Incorporating the hot trend of body percussion into the choreography and giving the 3 Policemen flashlights as props(!!), Kira will create a "Heartbeat Rhythm" that will combine with the music and create an intensity for the story's dramatic ending. Come see this truly Poe-etic ballet! Audiences have described Kira's work with New England Light Opera last year as "one-of-a-kind...a triumphant evening...a feast for the senses, so many textures/feelings, each more gorgeous than the last...very talented...terrific" and Kira's dancing was described as very graceful and beautiful. More about Kira Seamon's work can be seen on her Channel on Youtube!! Also performing for the second half of the program is Sallee Slagle and her Forty Steps Dance Company!! Sallee is an outstanding choreographer and I am excited to perform with her Company again, following our successful show last November at the Multicultural Arts Center in Cambridge. She always has beautifully trained dancers and interesting choreography and music! Forty Steps Dance Company performs all 3 nights.
