OPERA CHAOTIQUE present their debut album. It’s an altenative dark cabaret based on original compositions and combining various music styles such as opera elements and alternative pop-rock sounds mixed with Voodoo Chants & New Orleans jazz -blues. So, a new, unique style of music has been created.
It’s a concept album with spoken interludes in which they narrate the surreal story of the Phantom’s of the Opera journey to New Orleans. There he meets & fall in love with the Voodoo Queen with a tragic ending.
Along with the colorful voice of Tenorman and the ritual drums of Voodoo Drummer the cd is dominated except of the piano, by the cello of Stavros Parginos. The album is enriched by the ethereal vocals of the soprano Lito Messini. Featuring the discreet presence of Bob Brozman on baglama (no 6) and the special approach from Blaine Reininger (Tuxedomoon) on violin (no 13).
