Avantasia is a German heavy / power metal supergroup project created by Tobias Sammet, vocalist of the band Edguy. It has been characterised as a rock opera, featuring the participation a variation of vocalists and musicians. The name is a portmanteau of the words "avalon" and "fantasia" ("fantasy") and describes "a world beyond human imagination" (a quotation from the booklet).

The project can be divided into three periods of activity. The first 1999-2002 saw the release of a self-titled single and two full-length albums with the subtitle The Metal Opera. The second 2005-2011 consists of the EPs Lost in Space Part I & II and the The Wicked Trilogy, composed of the albums The Scarecrow, The Wicked Symphony and Angel of Babylon. The third period from 2011 begins with the album The Mystery of Time.
