SADO_OPERA by Nicolas Andre

SADO OPERA! You can already tell from the name that these guys are not the “basic” average band. What you cannot imagine is the amount of madness, energy and talent they manage to bring into their music and live shows. No wonder they are residents at one of the world’s best clubs (in our humble opinion) Salon zur Wilden Renate. Tones of make up, extreme costumes, a crazy kinkiness diffused all over and funky, poppy and highly addictive tunes with fun vocals/ lyrics. Enter the magnificent world of SADO OPERA!


Our names are Colonel and Magic Doll but you might know us as SADO OPERA.  

We were born in Leningrad and grew up in St. Petersburg.

In our childhood our idols were Prince, Liberace and Ludwig II of Bavaria, because we love it “over the top”..

 In 2009 we decided to make the best party in town and did our first big show. Since then we performed a lot. First in St. Petersburg and Moscow and later in Berlin and all over Europe..

One of the best gigs we played was at the Fusion festival this year. But it’s hard to choose one. Another very special gig was in September with legendary Conan O’Brien. He was performing with us on stage for the filming of his TV show. It was so much fun when Conan appeared on stage trying to look and act like a SADO OPERA member and with the same black and white make up as we all have. One of the best gigs we have been to was George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic in Moscow. We loved their spectacular groove.Conan O'Brien with Colonel_BEFORE




Now we live in Berlin at our SADO-Palace with our drummer Mr. Adolf and our bass player Wild Man. We meet every morning for breakfast, then we play music and work out. Then we eat cakes and in the evening after the dinner we usually make sex. Brothers and sisters are always welcome..

We sometimes argue when we undress them. Wild Man and Mr. Adolf often want to start making love immediately, but then Colonel calms them down with his special skills while Magic Doll takes care of the brother/sister. So when the main party starts we are united and guarantee 100% pleasure. Just like at our shows.

We enjoy eating butts and playing games a lot. We can spend hours in bathtub cleaning each other. One of our favorite places to visit is Wilde Renate club in Berlin, because we are residents there and it is our second home.

Magic Doll at the SADO-palace BIG On weekdays we work on music, go to the market, do our nails and on weekends we usually perform and search for the possible new members of our big family among the audience.

Our favorite songs at the moment are Godmother – MTFTM, Erkut Taçkın – Sevmek İstiyorum (Mehmet Aslan Rework), Talking Heads – Life During Wartime.

Some films we watched lately and liked was The Conformist by Bertolucci and Julieta by Almodovar.

The last series we watched and loved was The Golden Girls.

We are very inspired by Talking Heads’ live shows and “unlikely animal friendships” videos.

Our dream is to be at the Top of the World

Our worst nightmare is a low stage. We need higher stages to let more people see us

We love big cocks, tits and roses and hate is unknown to us, we never felt it.

We are addicted to mother milk, we just cannot stop drinking it every day. This is one of the secrets of our beauty.

We get totally fucked up, when we don’t style our hair before leaving the SADO-Palace..

Local Suicide reminds us of birthday cake with chocolate, berries, whipped cream and candles..


Tomorrow we perform at Wilde Renate.Conan O'Brien with Colonel_AFTER

Next month we shoot a new video.

Next year we go on tour, release 2 EPs and make a big surprise for our fans.

In 10 years we hope that all the girls will be crazy about us.


If we were a car, we would be a cable car. If we were an animal, we would be a rat pack. If we were a drug, we would be sugar. If we were an invention, we would be a toothbrush. If we were an object, we would be a butt plug.

If we could date ourselves, we would create a time paradox the result of which can cause a chain reaction that would unravel the very fabric of the space-time continuum and destroy the entire universe! So we better date someone else.

If we could play with anyone it would be Queen. We would like to collaborate with Giorgio Moroder.

If we had only one wish, it would be More Champagne! Champagne for everybody.

We would never forget to cool a Champagne bottle before opening, because warm Champagne is no fun.


Our word of advice to the reader would be to drink more water, eat more vegetables and masturbate.
