It is said that 'Les bals des victimes', or 'The victims' balls', were soirees put on by dancing societies after the period known as the 'Reign of Terror' during the French Revolution.
The victim's ball
As the first solo Project from the twisted mind of Robert Massaglia of 'The Tenth Stage', 'The Victim's Ball' comes as dramatically fitting approach to the theme of the French Revolution. A mix of early classical music, dark cabaret and "Phantom of the Opera" epic scores, 'The Victim's Ball' explores in theatrical and yet "tongue and cheek' tones, the dark and hidden side of human history. Through tales of despair, horror and rebellion, you will take heed a rare mix of instruments from church organs to hurdy gurdys, in conjunction with guest collaborations from other sick minded artists.
