Formed in 1982, Opéra de Nuit is a French coldwave band belonging to the independent scene from the early 80s, including five musicians, four from Valréas and the fifth from the Drôme department, in southeastern France. Self-taught band bringing a certain kind of will, the Opera wanders from halls to basements, from attics to caves: they multiply concerts in France and elsewhere (Paris, Lyon, Marseille, …), as well as their interviews and radio broadcasts.

Their first EP, Amour Noir, is recorded in 1984. Then, Sourire de l’Ombre was the second EP recorded in 1986. S/T (LP) was set up in 1988, propelling the five musicians adventure to an concrete and sensitive form. The disc is a tumultuous invitation to the Opera’s vessel. Then and finally in 2005, the song Ami! Amant! will appear on “Transmission, 81-89: The French-Cold wave”, a compilation made in a tribute to the leading bands of the independent French scene (L’Enfance Eternelle, Guerre Froide, Baroque Bordello, KaS Product, …).

Band Members:

Erick Adrien - guitar, voice & synth
Franck Adrien - drums & synth
Jean-François Chaleyssin - bass
Azzedine - echo man writer (?)
Richard Fekkar - synth
