- Polka: "Where are we?"
- Allegretto: "His power was so immense, he actually managed to rip a hole in space. We can't just leave things like this. Come on, we'd better go and find him."
- — Allegretto and Polka are shocked to find themselves in this village of the dead.
- "This place? This is the City of the Dead. Those who die from taking mineral powder can't pass on to the next world, but they can't stay in this one. This city is for souls with no place to go. This is a city for all the souls who have no place to go because of the mineral powder."
- —A red soul orb to the party
After the party emerges victorious over Count Waltz at the summit of Mt. Rock, he refuses to admit defeat and orders his lieutenant Legato to drink the enhanced mineral powder created from an agogo that glowed in Polka's presence. After drinking it, Legato becomes Ruined Body, a terrible monster with enormous power at its command. Waltz then tries to turn that power on the party, but Polka emits a brilliant flash of light and the party collapses.
When the party comes too, they find Waltz and Ruined Body gone and a dark vortex directly in front of them. This is the Elegy of the Moon distortion. After stating their resolve, they step through it and find themselves in a strange village populated by glowing orbs. Speaking with the orbs, they discover that this a village of the dead, whose souls were lost to the mineral powder and now cannot move on. As they move on, they discover that Waltz and Ruined Body have fled to the Double Reed Tower of Sand, but there's an energy barrier blocking the path and to lower it, they must first scale the Xylophone Tower of the Shining Keys within Elegy of the Moon.

Behind the scenesEdit
- In the Xbox 360 version of Eternal Sonata, Waltz is defeated at the Mt. Rock battle. Legato drinks the mineral powder of his own volition, becomes Ruined Body, and then flees to Double Reed Tower.
- In the PlayStation 3 version of Eternal Sonata, a teleporter back to the Baroque Castle grounds Warp Room can be found in the area outside the Xylophone Tower in Encore Mode. In the Xbox 360 version, there is no teleporter and the player must travel back through Mt. Rock and To Coda Ruins to return to Baroque.
- Though it is never stated specifically, context clues suggest that the blue orbs found in the town were male in life, and the pink orbs are female. Both colors are normally associated with the respective genders.
