Storyboard Text

  • The red death had long devastate the country
  • He summoned to his presence a thousand hale and light-hearted friends from among the knights and dames of his court, and with these retired to the deep seclusion of one of his castled abbeys.
  • But Prince Prospero was happy and dauntless and sagacious. 
  • Prince prospero etnertained his thousand friennds at a masqued ball of the most unusual magnificance. 
  • The seventh apartment was closely shrouded in black in black velvet tapestries that hung all over the ceiling and down the walls.
  • The panes were scarlet-a deep blood color
  • In this apartment, also, there stood against the western wall, a gigantic ebony clock.
  • But in this chamber only,the color of the windows failed to correspond with the decorations.
  • Its pendulum swung to and fro with a dull, heavy, monotonous clang;
  • and when the min-hand made the circuit of the face, and the hour was to be stricken, there came from the brazen lungs of the clock a sound ich was clear and loud and deeo and exceedingly musical, but of so peculiar a note and emphasis that, at each lapse of an hour
  • the musicians of the orchestra were constrained to pause, momentarily, in their preformance, to hearken to the sound; and there was a brief disconcert of the whole gay company
  • The whole company, indeed, seemed now deeply to feel that in the costume and bearing of the stranger neither wit nor propriety.
  • The figure was tall and gaunt, and shrouded in the habiliments of he grave.
  • There were none who put forth hand to seize him.
  • There was a sharp cry-and the dagger dropped gleaming upon the sable carpet, upon which, instantly afterward, fell prostrate in death the prince prospero.
  • and the life of the ebony clock went out with that of the last of the gay.
  • and the flames of the tripods expired. and darkness and decay and tredhe 
  • and now was acknowledged the presence of the red death.
