Goblin's Claudio Simonetti Treats His Score to Dario Argento's 'Opera' to Deluxe Vinyl Reissue
Published Mar 17, 2017While we continue to wait for the upcoming remake of Dario Argento's giallo classic Suspiria, light is being shed on another one of the Italian director's famed works, 1987's Opera. This year, the horror flick is celebrating its 30th anniversary, and as such, the film's score, done by Argento's go-to Goblin composer Claudio Simonetti, is being treated to a lavish vinyl reissue.
So far details are slim, but retail listings point to a 30th anniversary release of Simonetti's soundtrack, which will arrive around June 19 via Rustblade.
The product listing for the reissue reads as follows:
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the film, Rustblade is releasing the definitive edition of the soundtrack to Dario Argento's cult film Opera. Argento's long-time collaborator Claudio Simonetti combines classic operatic atmospheres with dark electronic grooves and violently smashing rock. Never was Argento more closely involved in the structuring of one of his film's soundtracks. Includes 3 never before released bonus tracks. Not to be missed!
The reissue will apparently arrive as two different editions: one as a full-on limited box set and another as a limited colour vinyl edition. At this point, though, the details of each version have yet to be revealed, but that's the cover art for the box set above.
For now, you can sample some of Simonetti's Opera soundtrack below.
