Ghost B.C. at Ogden Theatre, 4/18/13


As is customary at this point, before Ghost took the stage, Jocelyn Pook's haunting "Masked Ball" from Eyes Wide Shut came through the P.A. and perfectly set the mood for what was to follow. At first, the Nameless Ghouls took their places and started off with "Per Asperi ad Inferi" in costumes that resembled a more stylized and less cumbersome doctor masks from the era of the black plague. When Papa Emeritus II strode dramatically forth, the enthusiasm level went up a notch.
