From the May 15, 2014 edition

CAPA and Shadowbox Live collaborate to present a one-night-only rock ballet inspired by the works of Edgar Allen Poe.

Loosely based on Poe’s short story “The Masque of the Red Death,” about Prince Prospero attempting to avoid a plague by hiding in his abbey and having a masquerade ball in seven different rooms, “The Masque” also incorporates other Poe works.

In this performance each of the seven rooms will represent one of Poe’s writings (“The Raven,” “The Fall of the House of Usher,” etc.).
