Gala 2019:
Masque of the Red Death Costume Ball

Fri. Nov. 1, 2019 (Day of the Dead)
The Graduate Hotel, Eugene

The "Red Death" had long devastated the country. No pestilence had ever been so fatal, or so hideous. Blood was its Avatar and its seal—the redness and the horror of blood…The scarlet stains upon the body and especially upon the face of the victim, were the pest ban which shut him out from the aid and from the sympathy of his fellow-men. — Edgar Allan Poe, Masque of the Red Death


Escape the Great plague of the Ordinary.

All Ladies and Lords of the city are hereby summoned to the secluded ballrooms of our castle—for a masked ball of magnificent and macabre art and delight.

Thou art Certainly chosen.

Don a { Victorian Gothic } costume and mask.

Cavort amongst the eccentric artists of Ballet Fantastique and fellow sagacious friends for an eve submerged in consumptive feasting and entertainments most bizarre.

Also: Plentiful mystery, gothic revels and spirits.

A life of normality and regret surely awaits those who do not join in Ballet Fantastique’s important and most inimitable benefit night this season.

{ Plague masques, amulets and additional lives to be available for purchase. }
