Lizzie Borden with The Raven


  • Tenneessee Performing Arts Center 505 Deaderick Street Nashville, TN, 37243 United States (map)

Did she or didn’t she? Viewers will judge for themselves when Lizzie Borden’s real-life double homicide case of 1892 hauntingly unfolds on stage this Halloween. Acquitted for the brutal axe murders of her father and stepmother, Lizzie Borden’s notorious courtroom trial remains one of the most controversial and sensationalized in American history. Nashville Ballet’s gripping interpretation takes audiences into the mind of the woman embroiled in the scandal to show that there may be more to the story than previously thought. The world premiere of The Raven explores Edgar Allan Poe’s dark poem by blending movement with a classical score and elements of spoken word. Lizzie Borden with The Raven takes place at TPAC's Polk Theater for three performances October 26-28, 2017. Click here for more information.
