One of NYC’s most famous annual Holiday traditions is the debaucherous Venetian masked event, in the spirit of Stanley Kubrick's "EYES WIDE SHUT" film w/ Tom Cruise & Nicole Kidman (PG-13 for this event, of course). Many playfully call it an elegant Halloween party in December. Due to the tremendous success of the past events, the famous "RED MASQUERADE BALL: A Sexy Venetian Holiday Affair" returns once again to Stage48.
What Happens Behind the Mask
Stays Behind the Mask...
This is a Venetian "mask" party, in the spirit of Carnival of Venice. Back in 1292, the original purpose of the Carnival of Venice was to serve as an excuse for people of different social classes to mingle and indulge in behaviors that might be otherwise deemed questionable, if not downright salacious. The custom of wearing masks developed to protect the identity of the Carnival participants and empowering them anonymous freedom to partake in their most intimate of fantasies and desires.
The point of RED MASQUERADE BALL is to provide a sexy evening of 'mystique' & 'playfulness' for you and your friends to experience the freedom of anonymity behind the mask, leaving your inhibitions behind, and setting your wildest fantasies free. So get in the playful, adventurous Venetian spirit and prepare for what is sure to be one of the most unforgettable & most tantalizing experiences of your lives...
We highly encourage you to purchase your own unique mask so you "stand out" from everyone else and that expresses your own one-of-a-kind “alter-ego”. There are plenty of wonderful costume shops in NYC as well as many wonderful online retailers that sell a wide assortment of Venetian masks for very economical prices.
