Squonk Opera

Squonk has performed their all-original multimedia spectacles on 3 continents, in over 30 of the United States, on Broadway and Off and even as part of the Top 48 on America's Got Talent.

Their playful, innovative, cinematic music combines elements of rock, jazz, pop, classical, Irish and progressive styles. But maybe it’s best to let the critics have a go at describing the sound…

“hypnotic…the sounds being made conjure the seductive, repetitive melodies of Philip Glass and Henryk Gorecki, mixed with the respiratory strains of Angelo Badalamenti.” - The New York Times

“stunning, sophisticated” - Washington Post

“gloriously eccentric” - Time Out New York

“a musical experience that’s colorful, chaotic, spiky, elegant, sensuous and surreal” - Tribune-Review

“frazzled but lovely…reference points: Kurt Weill, Penguin Café Orchestra, Meredith Monk, Laurie Anderson” - Village Voice

“Debussy meets Godzilla” - Washington Post
