Lots of great things happening on the musical wave that Zombie Opera’s Artistic Directors Bonnie and Liz are riding! Their new project, Super Smash Opera has been chosen as a MAGfest Special Event this year, and will be performed on Friday, Feb 19th at 1 pm in Panels 1. Later that same day, they have a Q&A in Panels 4 at 8:30. They are thrilled to be special guests, and plan to reward everyone’s confidence with fun new postcards, new puppets, props, and a full live orchestra and choir! They can’t wait to share the updates with the good people at MAGfest in National Harbor MD. If you can’t attend MAGfest this year, (and you totally should, because it’s amazing fun,) fret not- the administration usually posts their popular panels on YouTube after the convention.
In other news, Liz and her band of Steampunk opera singers is getting ready to launch a kickstarter for their new project, Steam ~ or ~ The Specters of the Knox Mill, another work in their continuing mission to invigorate the opera scene with fun, new material designed for a modern audience. Please stay tuned to learn how you can help contribute to the production of this internet-streaming mini-series.
Bonnie and Liz are also proud to announce the launch of the new Materia Collective Album sequel entitled Successor Final Fantasy VIII Remixed. Both performed on the album, and they continue their trend of combining Final Fantasy with gratuitous bird noises. It’s an extended-length album, the compiled works of several different composers, and is an excellent value for the price. We suggest you check it out if Final Fantasy music appeals to you.
Celebrations and anticipation, it’s a wonderful time to enjoy this new musical renaissance!
