Ages 18+. As the clock strikes seven until the stroke of ten, dare to venture back to 1842 to experience the Masquerade Ball from Edgar Allan Poe’s The Masque of the Red Death. Held in the castellated abbey of Prince Prospero, at a time when a terrible plague with gruesome symptoms swept over the land, guests merrily danced in six decorated and illuminated rooms of the abbey: the blue, purple, green, orange, white, and violet rooms. Very few were brave enough to venture into the seventh room, decorated in black and illuminated a deep blood color. Will you? Information: email@example.com
