On December 31st 2018, over 800 guests rang in the new year at an occult-elite-themed “Illuminati Ball” in New York City. Heavily inspired by the infamous masked ball held by Baroness de Rothschild in 1972, the Illuminati ball featured dark rituals, faux human sacrifices and Illuminati “leaders” in ornate animal masks. The event also featured elements from Eyes Wide Shut as masked guests witnessed performances that mixed eroticism with esoteric rituals.
Not unlike actual Illuminati balls held by the occult elite, the event took place inside a sumptuous building: The Weylin in Brooklyn, New York.
Upon arrival, guests selected a mask from the Masking Room and were then lead to the Domed Ballroom, where they were welcomed by “Baron de Rothschild,” a.k.a. the Pig King.
Accompanying the Pig King was his pregnant wife, the “Baroness de Rothschild,” who at one point gives birth to a bizarre creature.
Throughout the night, rituals and “initiations” took place in the many rooms and floors of the building under various themes such as wealth, love, basic needs, fame, and respect.
Of course, no elite-themed event would be complete without a celebration of cannibalism.
Weird fact: The rapper Prodigy of the group Mobb Deep was apparently a big fan of previous Illuminati parties.

The site’s FAQ contains some interesting information.
Are we really being considered for the Illuminati?
No. This is an immersive theater production about the Illuminati. We endeavor to enlighten and entertain you.
Is this a sex party?
No. The evening will be decadent and sensual and the show will contain some nudity, but this is absolutely not a sex party.
Are you worshipping the devil?
Absolutely not! We are not worshipping the devil. We are not sacrificing anyone — or anything. We are peace loving people who believe in nature and positivity. We want people to find the path to their dreams within themselves and treat all living beings with kindness.
The website also contains a weird “Commandments” tab which is about the Georgia Guidestones.
The event was organized by Cynthia von Buhler – an artist who is mostly known for her work as an author and illustrator for children’s books. In 2001 von Buhler was commissioned by Steven Spielberg to illustrate Martha Stewart’s story for Once Upon A Fairy Tale (Viking).
However, most of von Buhler’s other creations, which include paintings, sculptures and “immersive theatre” are far from children friendly.
The Illuminati Ball is very similar to the UNICEF Masked Ball that was described on this site a few months ago. Both were inspired by the Rothschilds and both attracted well-to-do individuals in a watered-down version of occult elite rituals. Like children who “play house” while pretending to be grown-ups, the guests of these parties took part in mock sacrifices, cannibalism, and occult rituals they pretended to be occult elite.
I guess that the next step would be to actually sacrifice children, eat actual humans and performs black magic rituals for maximum magical potential. Because that’s what these things are actually about.
