Dark Beauty will tell the legend of the Dark Angel who fell from grace and now rules an evil tower in an unknown land. Banished from heaven she is pulled down from grace above, falling deep into the woods of the dark primeval forest. With a broken wing she descends through twisted cathedral-like branches of trees. Dark Beauty, five supremely talented musicians who range from opera singer to a professor at the Manhattan School of Music have come together in a classically influenced, gothic alternative Progressive Rock band that will tell this tale in its concept album, “Fall From Grace”. This will be the first time anyone has ever heard it.
