A nameless person sits on death row, awaiting his execution. What possessed him to murder his wife? He begins to tell his story, the story of the black cat. Edgar Allan Poe’s novella delivers a dark journey into the abyss of a desperate murderer’s soul. It is accompanied by a musical mashup combining English songwriter David Sylvian’s works and arias from J.S. Bach’s cantatas—a collaboration with Musica Angelica Baroque Orchestra.

Runtime: 80 minutes without intermission.
Sung in English
