Genius is a rock opera trilogy that will include a total of 33 songs (11 for each episode).GENIUS GENRES
Even if the total duration of the Opera is about 4 hours of music for 3 CDs, the whole story concept refers to a dream experienced by the main character 'Genius' that lasts only 10 minutes!
It's known that dreams are often creating a time-stretch effect in our minds, so that a 10 minutes long dream can be remembered as a day long story...
Infact, these 10 minutes of Genius' dream has been described in 4 hour of music!
But we are not talking about a regular dream like all humans have always experienced...
In this 10 minutes Genius goes too far and discovers for the first time all the secrets of human's dream creation...
Italy, formed in 2002
