Album Notes
Bohemian Cabaret 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.” The group delivers passionate offerings of Bohemian cabaret for young and old. Paris hot jazz, gut bucket swing, tangos, Ukrainian folk-punk ballads, klezmer and vigorous originals meet a world of riverboat gambling queens, Turkish belly dancers, and the enigmatic Marlene Dietrich. Weaving elements of Kurt Weil, Duke Ellington and Edith Piaf with absurdist flair, theatrics and an old world mood, Vagabond Opera presents the new wave of opera–lusty voices singing in 13 languages and presenting a cabaret of rich musical phrasing, sparkling lyrics and indomitable stage presence, all played with exuberance, skill and a gritty Vagabond edge. This is Opera liberated and reinvented for everyone!

Second only to seeing them Live
The latest and long-awaited (at least by their devoted fans) release, The Zeitgeist Beckons is a tour de force of energy, talent, and chaos pressed into a CD. The combined skills of each musician weave together a fantastic show - which when seen live is riveting. The Zeitgeist Beckons tries to capture some of their stage presence and does a great job of showcasing their talents without too much overproduction. If you are a fan of the new wave of cabaret music, or just a fan of incomparable musicianship, give this album a listen.
