The tribute to Klaus Nomi results from the need to remember a unique figure after 25 years from his death, a master of scene handling and a sharp performer, an artist able to join the world of fashion, the opera, the disco music and a futuristic rock imagery together. An alien angel lost somewhere between the German expressionist cabaret and a time travel toward apocalypse, an artist creating a brand new way to develop the show, shaking the imagination of his disciples, who continue his style, not only in music.
Klaus disappeared because of AIDS in 1983.
