By Edgar Allen Poe.
Part of the MONA FOMA Summer Festival. Presented by Archipelago Productions, featuring Kris McQuade and the TSO Chorus.
Set in an opulent abbey during a rampant blood plague, Prince Prospero seals himself inside with a thousand friends to party until death burns itself out, and it becomes safe to return to the habitable world. But their plans disintegrate when a mysterious visitor crashes the party, and their haven becomes a tomb. Poe’s influential and timely short story is a sumptuous warning for our era.
Building on the recent success of the 2020 The Bleeding Tree and Venus and Adonis season, which played to capacity houses, the creative team reassemble for a follow up production. The Masque of the Red Death will be a bespoke music-theatre event.
