Classical Music Attack
The Prince Poppycock
The Classical is Modern
A new revolutionary singer named Prince Poppycock has reared his brilliant head to revitalize the classical music genre. His style of preforming classics like Largo al Factotum from the Barber of Seville, have brought new generations of music lovers to once again recognize the style of classical music. The Prince preforms with his trade mark twin mirrors and Victorian style of makeup and clothing, which gives the watcher and listener a feel of what classical music once was and now is.
Victorian style clothing and makeup began in 1873 to 1901. It stretched through the reign of Queen Victoria. The artistic uproar that had begun began to spill into peoples appearances, making them as though they were living artworks themselves. Now these styles were no where near as outrageous as Prince Poppycock, but he has a marvelous rendition of the style.The dress of the early Victorian era was similar to the Georgian era. Women wore corsets, large balloonish sleeves, crinolines, and the men basically wore similar. For reference appearance please look at Prince Poppycock's choice of clothing.
Classical music has always been defined by its extravagant musical notes, the songs that encompass the music, and the composers who write the music, such as Mozart, Strauss, and Bach. Prince Poppycock not only sings classics, but with his modern style of music, he adds a classical flare using his voice and even in the notes of hie music. Such songs as 'Rise up and Shout' and 'The Last Unicorn', done by himself as his alter ego John Quale, are perfect examples of such qualities.
