The Flying Opera is a boxed set containing two DVDs and two CDs by the German power metal band Avantasia, released in March 2011.[1] Avantasia evolved from being a side-project of Edguy vocalist Tobias Sammet to a full-fledging band touring all over the world.[2] The tracks of the set were recorded live during their first world tour in 2008, in support of the album The Scarecrow. The DVD contains also a documentary of the tour and various video clips.[2]

A three-LPs Limited Edition live album of The Flying Opera was released by Nuclear Blast Records in October 2011, with a total of 10.000 copies being printed.[3]
