Some Words with a Mummy is a theater organ-based electro swing operetta with music by Richard deCosta and lyrics by Thomas Cleveland Lane.
The score is most unusual, not just for opera, but for music in general. The orchestra consists of the following:
* A 3-manual, 12-rank Barton Theater Organ
* A hybrid jazz traps and electronic drum kit
* An electric bass guitar
* Several synthesizer voices
Although the theater organ alone gives it a rich, eerie sound, when
combined with the other instruments, and talented singers on top of it
all, the electro swing sound achieved is really quite new!
