Šou je više nego neobican, kombinuje više muzickih žanrova kao što su Opera, Džez, Kabare, Mjuzikl i drugi pretvarajuci ih u komicnu pricu.
„Operski pevac i pijanista Tenorman nastupao je samo sa velikim orkestrima. Vodoo Drummer nastupa sa džez bendovima širom sveta. Zajedno, oni mešaju dva ne-slicna žanra, Operu & Džez, provocirajuci sve stereotipe pomocu kojih stvaraju neobicno džez – opera iskustvo, u internacionalnoj Kabare veceri u kojoj se karakteri opere i muzicke slave nalaze zajedno na ulicama New Orleansa. - KC GRAD , Belgrade, SERBIA

""They are original, they have a humorous charm" / ORKUS mag GERMANY"

"They are original, they have a humorous charm &
an exciting affinity with legendary bands such as the Irrepresibles" - "The perfect enviroment for Opera Chaotique could easily be an old ruined theater.
Beneath the yellowed, used to be gold, gallery, the worn velvet of the seats and of the curtains, the torn wallpapers & under a huge oscillating chandelier with light that trembles over a dangerously rotten ceiling could the art of the Greek band highly be emerged." - ORKUS mag GERMANY
