Avantasia é um projeto musical capitaneado por Tobias Sammet, vocalista e principal compositor da banda de heavy metal alemã Edguy; seu nome é a junção de duas palavras: Avalon (local místico nas histórias do Rei Arthur) e Fantasia (terra fictícia, criada para o filme A História sem Fim). Trata-se da reunião de integrantes de diversas bandas para a gravação de um trabalho envolvendo Heavy MetalHard RockMúsica Clássica e Ópera. Os 2 primeiros álbuns que constituem o projeto trazem uma Metal Opera com uma história épica que mistura ficção, realidade (alguns personagens realmente existiram), religião e filosofia.

Uma das principais características de Avantasia é o fato de se tratar de uma Metal Opera, possuindo personagens e enredo.

O personagem principal da história é o jovem Gabriel Laymenn, noviço da Ordem Dominicana da abadia de Mainz. É o ano de 1602 e, juntamente com o resto de sua ordem, Gabriel participa de uma caça às bruxas. Mas quando ele é inesperadamente reunido com a sua meio-irmã, Anna Held, que espera seu julgamento por bruxaria, Gabriel começa a ter dúvidas. Ele se esgueira para dentro da biblioteca, onde ele lê um livro proibido. Seu mentor, Bruder Jakob o vê e Gabriel é atirado no calabouço.

Lá ele conhece um velho, Lugaid Vandroiy, que se apresenta como “o druida” (“Reach Out for the Light”). Ele conta a Gabriel sobre uma outra dimensão, o mundo de Avantasia, que corre grande perigo. Ele se oferece para ajudar a resgatar Anna, se Gabriel concordar em ajudar Avantasia. Eles conseguem escapar (“Breaking Away”), e Vandroiy leva Gabriel a um velho poço de pedra que guarda o portal entre as duas dimensões, utilizando-o para enviar Gabriel a Avantasia.

Enquanto isso, Johann Adam Von Bicken, o bispo de Mainz, Bruder Jakob e o Oficial de Justiça, Falk Von Kronberg, estão a caminho de Roma para encontrar o Papa Clemente VIII (“The Glory of Rome”). Em sua posse eles têm o livro que Gabriel leu. Velhos documentos contam que o livro é a última das sete partes de um lacre, que ajudará o seu detentor a alcançar o conhecimento absoluto caso ele o leve à torre no centro de Avantasia.

Quando Gabriel chega à Avantasia (“Avantasia”) ele é recebido por dois habitantes, o elfo Elderane (Andre Matos) e o anão Regrin (Kai Hansen), na música “Inside”. Eles contam sobre a guerra contra as forças do mal, dos planos do Papa e de suas conseqüências (“Sign of the Cross”). Se o Papa usar o lacre, a conexão entre Avantasia e o mundo humano irá se romper causando terríveis conseqüências para ambos os mundos. Gabriel chega bem a tempo na Torre e, enquanto o Papa fala com a voz misteriosa que sai de dentro dela, Gabriel rouba o lacre e, em meio ao caos, ele consegue trazê-lo à cidade dos elfos (“The Tower”), o que marca o fim da primeira parte.

Mas Gabriel ainda não se dá por satisfeito. Ele quer saber mais sobre Avantasia e, assim, Elderane o envia à Árvore do Conhecimento. Lá, Gabriel tem a visão de Bruder Jakob submetido a grandes dores em um lago de chamas (“The Final Sacrifice”). Elderane conta a ele sobre um grande cálice dourado nas catacumbas de Roma, local em que se encontram presas um incontável número de almas torturadas, e o avisa da Besta que guarda o cálice. Apesar da tentativa do elfo de desencorajá-los, Gabriel e Regrin voltam ao mundo humano. Eles encontram o cálice e o derrubam, para que as várias almas possam escapar (“Chalice of Agony”). A Besta desperta e os ataca; o anão é morto, mas Gabriel consegue escapar.

Após, Gabriel retorna para Vandroiy, que o estava esperando. O Druida cumpre com sua parte do acordo e se infiltra na prisão à noite para libertar Anna. Lá ele encontra um Burder Jakob mais “refinado”, que planeja fazer o mesmo. Falk Von Kronber, que estava tendo suas próprias dúvidas (“Memory”), os apanha e se aproxima para prendê-los. Isso os leva a uma luta em que Kronberg mata Vondroiy, mas é assassinado por Bruder Jakob. Então, Anna escapa e retorna para Gabriel, seguindo rumo ao seu futuro desconhecido (“Into the Unknown”).

Avantasia is a heavy metal/power metal supergroup project created by Tobias Sammetvocalist 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). The project consists of a self-titled single, two full-length albums with the subtitle The Metal Opera, two EPs called Lost in Space, and Scarecrow trilogy, composed of The ScarecrowThe Wicked Symphony and Angel of Babylon.
