ArtsEmerson: ‘Moby Dick’

January 26 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm EST

Herman Melville’s immeasurably influential novel is brought to life in this radiant stage production featuring seven actors, 50 puppets, video projections, a drowned orchestra, and a life-sized whale. Renowned director Yngvild Aspeli stages this eye-popping visual adaptation of Melville’s classic book with the help of the endlessly inventive Norwegian theater company, Plexus Polaire.

Moby Dick is, on its surface, the simple tale of a whaling expedition, but the story’s haunting themes of unparalleled obsession lead us all to question the unexplained mysteries of life and of the human heart. In this groundbreaking production, the classic is reborn with a freshness and urgency that makes it truly unforgettable.
