Executive Producer Mike Dalager explains the origins of Dreams in the Witch House:

“It was on a transatlantic flight to Stockholm on September 1st, 2011 when I discovered H.P. Lovecraft’s The Dreams in the Witch House. My trip was to be a mixture of business and pleasure, and my colleague, Andrew Leman had recommended I read the story just prior to my departure. A few days later in Stockholm, I was to have a meeting with my long-time music co-writer, Chris Laney, who would eventually provide Industrial Metal tracks for a short film I was working on, using deleted Black Pharaoh footage from the HPLHS Motion Picture, The Whisperer in Darkness (directed by Sean Branney). Andrew suggested I read The Dreams in the Witch House to gain more insight into the Black Pharaoh, a mighty Lovecraft character who appears as different forms, identified by a variety of ominous names – Nyarlathotep, The Crawling Chaos, and The Black Man of the Witch-Cult. As the flight continued, The Dreams in the Witch House quickly left an impression on me and I began to envision the story on a theatrical stage.

Gains and Blair discuss the project in the interviews below. Read more about Dreams in the Witch House at rock opera’s official website, HERE.
