The cast of the upcoming new rock-meets-classical fusion show, Rock Me Amadeus, have come together virtually to release a new music video, entitled, “Black Hole Soleil.” The song is an original mashup of “Ah! leve toi soleil,” the tenor aria from Romeo et Juliette by Charles Gounod, “Black Hole Sun” by Soundgarden and “Here Comes the Rain Again” by the Eurythmics. The song and video provide a glimpse of the talent and energy that will be on display in the new production, Rock Me Amadeus, slated to open in NYC this fall.
Produced by Alyson Cambridge and Tony Bruno, “Black Hole Soleil” features internationally acclaimed vocalists from the worlds of Opera, Broadway, Rock and R&B: Victor Ryan Robertson (tenor), Alyson Cambridge (soprano), Tony Vincent, Toby Rand, Chloe Lowery and Kia Warren. Guitarist Tony Bruno is also the musical arranger of this newest mashup, with video editing by Simon Wheeldon.
Filmed in NYC, the LA canyons and Nashville, the video follows the story of a girl who’s searching to find her light again in a moment of darkness – the sun after the rain, hope after despair. Video director Matthew Stiller describes his vision for the video, saying “I’m looking for the viewer to reflect on when they may have felt this way themselves, and to root on our hero along the way. We’re exploring this adventure through a comic-type look to magnify the absurd vanity that our hero is up against.”
Look out for updates on the Rock Me Amadeus opening date and venue in New York City on RockMeAmadeusLive.com. More video teasers and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage will be released via the show’s Website, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube every month through May 2021 to give fans a taste of the unique experience to come.
