The title track of Kamelot's eighth album, "Ghost Opera" was also their first single. The song is about a woman who is haunted by her dreams of being an opera star. She dreams of the crowd adoring her and chanting her name, but it is just that - a dream.
In our interview with Thomas Youngblood of Kamelot
, he explained that he came up with the story that inspired the song. In his story, the woman works hard and gets her chance to star in an opera, but on her way to the theater she is attacked, and is unable to perform.
This storyline is played out in the video, which shows her as an old woman looking back and thinking about what might have been.
