About Red Death

The Red Death is a costume worn by Erik in the musical franchise Phantom of the Opera. It is believed that the Red Death is inspired from Edgar Allan Poe’s The Mask of the Red Death.

The Red Death is believed to have been a plaque, decked in blood and is out to take the lives of people. The story depicts a Prince Prospero, who tries to avoid the plaque by hiding and holding masquerade balls in an abbey. The Red Death comes and takes his life, along with the guests.
