Vagabond Opera

The six piece, Portland, OR based music ensemble Vagabond Opera is described by the Washington Post as “a band of ceaseless charisma, boundless energy, impeccable musicianship and more than a little touch of both the naughty and exotic.” Featuring four singers (two operatically trained) two cellos, saxophone, clarinet, accordion, double bass and drums, the Bohemian neo-cabaret gypsy rock ensemble plays a combination of cabaret, burlesque, tango, Balkan beats, Klezmer, rock, Arab music, Parisian hot jazz, and, yes, opera that’ll leave your head spinning. The ensemble sings in 15 languages and mixes their genre-defying original tunes with covers made famous by such artists as Jacques Brel, Tom Waits, Raymond Scott, and Edith Piaf – all performed with theatrics, flair and an old world mood.

Vagabond Opera is at the vanguard of a growing popularity in the Neo-cabaret phenomenon, and through their theatrical performances and eclectic repertoire bring the eclectic artistic spirit of Portland, OR to the world. The May 2009 release of The Zeitgeist Beckons marks the third full-length release from the band to date. The ensemble recently premiered their first full length opera “Queen of Knives” in May 2010. Vagabond Opera has performed across the USA and in Europe, is played regularly on NPR and has shared stages and players with Pink Martini, Devotchka, The Decembrists, and the Oregon Symphony, proving their easy crossover appeal.
