The Official Trailer
B612 is a rock opera inspired by the book "The Little Prince" by Antoine De Saint-Exupéry.
The songs follow the narrative thread of the novel, intertwined with the life of the French writer, being told with the musical influences and texts by the story of the album’s author. Everything becomes a symbol and metaphor to describe the same journey with different points of view.
Musically, inspiration by Peter Gabriel’s “Ovo” or Marillion’s”Brave” can be found, combined with references to the tradition of the most iconic rock operas such as Jesus Christ Superstar.
The album features many guests, including Steve Hogarth and Steve Rothery of Marillion.
The deluxe edition is enhanced by a book of over 100 pages, containing photographs of the characters, figurines made of fondant by artist Ilaria D'Angelo. It’s an illustrated story that accompanies the narrative of the songs.
