On August 11, 2023, The Kirmon Project will release Rock Opera “Stained – The Disappearance Of Good Heart Joe.” Rock Company are pleased to help promote this epic undertaking. This opera is a modern day old fashioned fairytale about the life of four young people during the Christmas season in a huge city. More info on the website https://www.stained-opera.com.
Elian de Montcorbier (the writer of more than 50 books and poetry) came up with the idea of writing a Rock Opera. The story is fictional with autobiographic elements and contains fiction but certainly also nonfiction and he has experienced a lot from this opera himself.
Stanislaw Kirner used his capabilities to provide the opera with music that relates back to the 1970s and 1980s. Apart from writing the concept Stanislaw also made sure that it is not just rock music but also pop and symphonic. This is to build in an arsis and thesis so that as a listener you don’t just hear the same genre. In other words, a versatile opera. Let yourself be surprised.
