The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
Set in the tranquil Hudson River Valley, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow builds up to schoolmaster Ichabod Crane's meeting with the specter of a decapitated warrior known as the Headless Horseman. The schoolmaster mysteriously disappears after a confrontation with the Horseman, while the woman he loved marries his greatest rival, "Brom Bones." Washington Irving's dark and eloquent folktale captured the American imagination when it was first published in 1820 and has inspired several modern film adaptations and one stage musical.
