Neo Ancien


Neo is a prefix meaning new and ancien means old in French. We are a quintet that takes French opera music and modernizes it to create a rock feel. We rearrange traditional opera scores to fit a lead vocal, keyboard, electric violin, electric guitar, base guitar, and drums. Our violin is a six string fretted Viper violin, custom made by Mark Wood (a member of the Trans Siberian Orchestra). We have transpos
ed works by Monteverdi, Handel, Mozart, Rossini, and many others for preformance. This music fusion style of music is becoming a cornerstone musical genere and has even been called in the BBC’s music magizine ‘classical curruption that is here to stay’. We are proud to be part of this wave of music. Remember, even opera was new once.

This is our Viper.
