Avantasia is a heavy metal/power metal supergroup project created by Tobias Sammet, vocalist and frontman of the band Edguy. The project's title is a portmanteau of the words "avalon" and "fantasia" ("fantasy") and describes "a world beyond human imagination" (a quotation from the booklet). Avantasia is often referred to as a rock opera, as it features the participation of many renowned vocalists and musicians.
