‘Yet something walked
Along the stair
Something that was
And wasn’t there’

In the meantime Mark Bogert composed another scary adventure....
THE HAUNTED HOUSE
HERE'S a PREVIEW - STAY TUNED.....
JTR 1888 was Magoria's first Rock-Opera - released in 2020
The Autumn of Terror Begins
Jack the Ripper is a pseudonym given to a serial killer who lurked in the impoverished districts of London's east end in the autumn of 1888. The nickname was derived from a letter written at the time of the killings by someone who claimed to be the murderer. Although there have been many suspects in the case and theories discussed, the actual identity of the killer and the motives behind the grisly crimes are unknown even to this day.
Mark Bogert is the founder/guitarist/composer of this new Progrock-Opera called ‘JtR 1888’.
It is one of his dreams to write, record and perform a concept album. Musicians who participate on this album are Rodney Blaze, Inge Rijnja, Cleem Detemeijer, Zora Cock, Harmen Kieboom, Maria Catharina, Koen Stam, Peter Vink, Mirjam van Doorn, Nadine Pruim, Matthijs Kieboom and Peter Strykes!!
"Working together with great musicians, vocalists, an orchestra and a choir
will make this project extra special".
Mark is looking forward to the recording process, witch he hopes to start after this summer.
“I think this is going to be a huge project. I am very fascinated by the story of Jack the Ripper and can’t wait to work with the other musicians to get this beyond all expectations!”
On November, 7th 2020 we did the only show so far, but after COVID we will be back
