And who best to put you in that Venetian party frame of mind than the master of song and theatrics: Andrew Lloyd Webber with his song "Masquerade" from The Phantom of the Opera. Here are some of my favorite lines:
"Flash of mauve... Splash of puce... Fool and king... Ghoul and goose... Green and black... Queen and priest... Trace of rouge... Face of beast..."Eye of gold... Thigh of blue... True is false... Who is who?... Curl of lip... Swirl of gown... Ace of hearts... Face of clown...
"Faces... Drink it in . . .drink it up . . .till you've drowned in the light . . . in the sound . . .
"Masquerade! Grinning yellows, spinning reds . . . Masquerade! Take your fill - let the spectacle astound you!
"Masquerade! . . .Stop and stare . . . at the sea of smiles around you!"
- The Phantom of the Opera
I hope this put you in a fun and theatrical mood as you prepare your costumes and ready yourselves for the magic of Halloween!
