More on the subject: "The theme of the Veiled Prophet, a gay autumnal holiday pageant held each year in St. Louis, Missouri, is based loosely on Lalla Rookh, by Thomas Moore, published in 1817. The story tells of the journey of Lalla Rookh, an Indian princess, on her way to Cashmere to marry the young king. A Cashmerian poet, Feramorz, accompanies her party and entertains the princess with four narrative poems dealing with romantic themes of love and liberty. Lalla Rookh, find herself falling in love with the poet and is delighted to find that he is actually her future bridegroom. The Veiled Prophet celebration in St. Louis, which began in 1878, was originally art of the Fall Festival of Fair Week. At first, a street parade and a ball were held on the same night. As the city grew and the parade became longer, it became necessary to hold the parade and the ball on successive night. The Veiled Prophet ball is the greatest of social events. Invitations come from no one knows where, only the elect of the social world are invited. The custom of sending a souvenir with each invitation persists, and even the invitations, which are works of art, are treasured. The parade is open to the public and draws a huge crowd no matter what the weather. A mysterious prophet, with his queen, court, and order of knights, rules over the two-day carnival, parade and ball. The secrecy, which surrounds the pageant, makes it doubly attractive and has never been violated.
