“A band of ceaseless charisma, boundless energy, and impeccable musicianship” The Washington Post

Paris hot jazz, gut bucket swing, tangos, Ukrainian folk-punk ballads, Klezmer, and foot-stomping original tunes meet a world of riverboat gamblers, Turkish belly dancers, and the enigmatic Marlene Dietrich. Weaving elements of Kurt Weil, Duke Ellington, and Edith Piaf, Vagabond Opera presented Old World Music with New World Flair—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.

Produced in cooperation with Sound Culture Chicago. Please visit Vagabond Opera's website for more audio and video.
