Karmaflow in Concert is the liveshow bringing you music from the multidisciplinairy project Karmaflow: The Rock Opera Videogame
Karmaflow was initiated by composer Ivo van Dijk in 2012 and started out as a graduation project for him and 12 fellow students of the HKU University of the Arts Utrecht. The team strives to bring a new and unique way of telling interactive stories through the medium of videogames and is taking it one step further by bringing the music of Karmaflow to stage.
Karmaflow: The Rock Opera Videogameis a full-blown interactive rock opera and features singers from bands such as Dragonforce, Cradle of Filth, Epica, Sonata Arctica, Arch Enemy and more. The symphonic sound of the score is brought by the Dutch Metropole Orkest.
A specially formed band will perform the music of Karmaflow on stage. It might be strengthened by a string-quartet and / or an alternating cast of guest-singers mainly from the metal scene when the band will be performing live.
On the 18th and 19th of January, Karmaflow in Concert: The Rock Opera hit the stage in “Theater aan de Parade”, ‘s-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands. This theatre was the platform for the première of the world’s first interactive rock / metal opera performed live with The Metropole Orkest and a cast of 14 singers. With this opera we will be celebrating the coinciding release of Karmaflow: The Rock Opera Videogame
Karmaflow tells the story of the Karmakeeper, and his journey through several worlds. Each world is protected by a Guardian. These Guardians are burdened by a heavy conflict, which rages in each world. The Karmakeeper learns what happened in each world by hearing each Guardian out, but also listening to their counterparts. In the end, he decides what happens to the world and its inhabitants.
Join the Karmakeeper’s journey and and enjoy the struggle of the different forces of good and evil in Karmaflow in Concert.
