so is this going to be an opera or more of a musical?It should be a collection of classical singing pieces, unless we add a pop/jazz section later. There won’t be any text between the pieces, and no videos (unless someone wants to make some). Just text and music — the only things I am a bit competent at.
This is my little contribution to the amazing Sherlock fandom. The Sherlopera project, when completed, should be a collection of operatic arias, lieder and melodies with modified lyrics that fit our glorious fanon. If everything goes as planned, I should be able to complete the project around August 2012. If it doesn't, it might take another full year. My fanblog is ishouldbebritish.tumblr.comWhat is the Sherlopera project?
There is still a huge amount of work to do on these ones. Except for verses one to eight (they suck), the ideas are quite what I want them to be, and all the verses have the right meter, but I haven’t found good words/rhymes yet.
I have not been here since my grad,
It’s been a while.
The lab is different from my time,
Should I be glad?
A man is sitting alone there,
It must be him.
Could it be that with this one man
My life would change?
Oh God, oh God!
I’ve never seen eyes quite like his!
So deep, so bright and oh, so right looking at me!
Wake up, John! Oh God,
You should not be into blokes!
Oh! Shut up, John!
Can’t you give this one guy a chance?
That man who just left in a blast,
He will be mine.
I am in search of musicians for the Sherlopera project. If you are part of the Sherlock fandom and would like to help with this big little project, your help would be more than welcome. Unfortunately, I cannot pay any of you, but everyone who helps will be given all the credit they deserve.
I am precisely searching for a classical pianist who can play opera reductions and lieder/melodie piano parts. Any other musician who can play this kind of music (woodwinds for example) would be a huge help too.
If you are a trained classical singer and a Sherlock fan, please contact me! I don’t want to sing it all by myself!
From now on, I will post everything Sherlopera related in here instead of posting it on my fanblog. I will not post here very often, but I will try to update with new lyrics every two weeks or so. Anyone who wants to help is welcome!
