Hoffman, Scene I
Hoffman, Scene V into Scene VI

Hoffman, a modern satiric opera by composer Jonathan Saunders, mocks the contemporary celebrity culture as it portrays the loves and misadventures of Hoffman, a local rock idol whose fall is not the result of others' machinations but his own weakness. The libretto, by Andrew Saunders, is loosely based upon The Tales of Hoffmann by Jacques Offenbach.

Undone
Antiquated Love Song
Strange
Concerto for the Original Sinners
Lament

The undoing of: three idealistic rock and rollers, a maritime poet who can't remember how to write, a love-struck pawn on the western front, and those immortalized lovers who blew it for Everyman. Set to music that comes undone at the end of an electric concerto before finally asking who will set things right. Undone, the third album by Zen Rock and Roll.

Circle
Available on: Amazon.com

The Birthright Circle is the second CD release from Zen Rock and Roll. It is composed and recorded in the spirit of the British symphonic rock movement of the early 1970's and will certainly appeal to fans of the first album. Tracks include the dysfunctionally angry Thanatos, the agnostically advisory Anthem, the ironically upbeat Richard, and the realistically hopeful Circle.

Available on: Amazon.com, Progrock Records

End of the Age is the debut CD release from Zen Rock and Roll. It is composed and recorded in the spirit of the British symphonic rock movement of the early 1970's.
