A Mustache touting accordion player bellows opera from a Victorian hot air balloon while Tesla coils and theremins whistle on stage. The cellos’s begin to duel. A belly dancing chanteuse sings of ancestors and wails to the moon. The Guitarron’s been drinking.
Portland’ own Bohemian Gypsy pop ensemble, Vagabond Opera and Seattle’s infamous and dance-able Abney Park present a wild summer Steampunk extravaganza. Victorian fashion, culture and art mingle with Steam Power, anachronistic technology and really cool outfits for an interactive evening not to be missed. Featuring a Steampunk marketplace, audience interaction and costumes highly encouraged!
