The project takes shape in May 2016 with the name "Theater of The Moon", a group born from the passion of drummer Lorenzo Angelini. It develops over time and, after the succession of various musicians, it is finalized in September 2018 reaching the perfect "quadrature" with the inclusion in the staff of musicians of undoubted value and crystalline technique (indispensable qualities given the exceptional nature of the music proposed ), taking the name StarLight. The symphonic-metal genre is characterized by the union of orchestral-classical symphonic music to heavy metal to which is added the typical lyric voice of the opera, in the specific case admirably proposed by the soprano Irene Petitto, who arrived at the StarLight band in May 2019. The band performs in live concerts and theatrical performances of great acoustic and visual impact, replicating the evocative atmospheres evoked by the original band they are inspired by. The show offered by the STARLIGHTS is not only a Simphonic metal concert, but it can certainly be defined as a MUSICAL, given the participation on the stage of dance choreographies.
