The Chicken of the Opera is the third album by Every Ape and His Brother, and features the third character in line at the imaginary red carpet meeting where "every ape and his brother is going to be there!" Chicken spoofs two folk and traditional tunes with the Every Ape treatment, along with spoofing the usual the fare found in the previous two albums. First conceived of in 2008, it took until February 25th of 2012 to complete this album. Its completion paved the way for the next installment: Poss Window.


After Morbid the Horrendous Hobo and Elefante Elegante Interesante Importante found their way to the Red Carpet Event, they were surprised to see a chicken following right behind them. It also shocked the officials at a local theater, whose performances were being constantly interfered with by a chicken that dressed in a tux.
