If they call it cyberpunk it's got to be cool - Repo! The Genetic Opera

Repo! The Genetic Opera is going to be coming to the Keystone Arts Cinema in Indianapolis on Wednesday January 14th for the Repo Road Tour 3! This road tour is the last road tour, and the director and creators of the film are going to be there, along with yet to be determined actors from the film. Tickets are only $15 and it's HIGHLY suggested you get them in advance, as they will sell out all 500 seats. Trust me, Repo is something you need to see with a group of fans. It's been likened to the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Organ reposession, drugs from the dead, sick little girls, and grave robbers await you in a dystopian cyberpunkish future set to an unforgettable industrial rock opera featuring Anthony Stewart Head (Buffy), Alexa Vega (Spy Kids), Nivek Ogre (of Skinny Puppy fame), Sarah Brightman, Paris Hilton, Paul Sorvino, Bill Mosely, and Terrance Zdunich (co-creator and animator!) As you can see, the cast is as eclectic as the opera itself.

Here's the official synopsis of the film from the site:

"In the year 2056 - the not so distant future - an epidemic of organ failures devastates the planet. Out of the tragedy, a savior emerges: GeneCo, a biotech company that offers organ transplants, for a price. Those who miss their payments are scheduled for repossession and hunted by villainous Repo Men. In a world where surgery addicts are hooked on painkilling drugs and murder is sanctioned by law, a sheltered young girl searches for the cure to her own rare disease as well as information about her family's mysterious history. After being sucked into the haunting world of GeneCo, she is unable to turn back, as all of her questions will be answered at the wildly anticipated spectacular event: The Genetic Opera."

A friend of mine is a Repo Road Tour Leader for Indianapolis, so she's going to need help flyering, advertising, and getting the good word out. If you know of any papers or radio stations that would be interested in this sort of thing, please let me know! Also, please forward this email to ANYONE you think might even BAT an eyelash at this film or show the slightest interest in. Even if your friends can't make it to Indianapolis, the Road Tour is making numerous stops, including Cincinnati, St. Louis, and Milwaukee! Tickets are available at http://www.reporoadto... There is going to be an article in Wednesday's NUVO magazine, too!

    English:

    A long time ago
    a fatal bird named
    Chromaggia
    met the arrow of an archer
    while flying.
    Along the lava coasts
    for years, thinking it was being
    chased
    it escaped the arrow

    Chromaggia chromaggia
    why don't you face danger?
    the arrow was attached to its wing
    and it flew trying to shake it off

    Pulling the arrow
    others get wounded because of me
    because of me
    down! towards the devil's mouth!
    its arrow, my eyes
    CHROMAGGIA, COME TAKE THESE EYES! I WOULD RATHER BE BLIND!

    TANTO TEMPO FA UN UCCELLO FATALE DI NOME CHROMAGGIA INCROCIÒ IN VOLO LA FRECCIA DI UN ARCIERE
    LUNGO LE COSTE DI LAVA PER ANNI,
    PENSANDO DI ESSERE INSEGUITA,
    SCAPPÒ DALLA FRECCIA CHROMAGGIA,
    CHROMAGGIA PERCHÉ NON AFFRONTI IL PERICOLO?
    LA FRECCIA ERA LEGATA ALL'ALA E LEI VOLAVA PER LIBERARSENE TIRANDO LA FRECCIA, ALTRI SON FERRITI PER MIA COLPA, MIA COLPA GIÚ!
    VERSO LA BOCCA DEL DIAVOLO! LA SUA FRECCIA, I MIEI OCCHI. CHROMAGGIA,
    COME TAKE THESE EYES...!
    I WOULD RATHER BE BLIND!

    Such as the "nerd" time, I have did my homework:

    The opera singer is Sarah Brightman a real soprano, born in UK. I don?t know if the song is original from the movie, but of course is such as Italian opera. The title is Chromaggia (isn't an Italian word) The lyrics is strange, but I found it and I will attach here for other curios people.

    Ciao!

    Freak show, odd people and good cinema. It was a very nice evening. Better if we was in more people, but I had very fun and the movies was a musical, it's ok, very artistic and less splatter than I'd suppose.

    Thankyou for this beautiful meetup Heater.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
